I'm planning my SOA conversion, still gathering some parts. Just wondering if I can run it with the Hy-steer setup to the stock manual steering on a 74 FJ40. I will be running the saginaw setup sooner or later, just wondering if I can make do for now with the stock steering, as I have the new draglink to go on the SOA? I'm not sure if this has a GM tie rod end or not(I bought the whole setup used)

I did the SOA on mine and then didn't do the power steering until the next year. It should work fine with manual steering. I do recommend doing the power conversion, but if you can't do it now, do it later.

Do the power steering first. I will make a world of difference and is not the expensiive. Best thing I did to my cruiser 8 years ago.

Do it all at once - PS plates are best if both frame horns are boxed and the frame really beefed up, then you can decide on shackle reversal all at the same time to get your ride height and caster dialed in from the beginning.
