Thanks for all of the above input. I do understand that many of these products are on the market, however they are not on the market from Ballistic and we're doing our best to be a one stop shop so that you don't have to order from 5 different vendors to put together one axle if you don't like. We're not reinventing anything new with some of these products I know, but if I can incorporate a few new ideas that you guys would like to see then that would be great. This is a 1st gen pickup axle that I am working on now, the FJ80 stuff will be down the road, so don't pick up the phone to order some FJ80 high steer arms just yet. Thanks

i made this a year or so ago. it since has had splines milled in the stud holes for ss inserts that are clamped by the studs. it would be cool to see a hub similar to the 7075 ones you made for a toy axle that uses standard toy bearings with your style drive flange to eliminate hub studs. this has helicoiled stud holes, and 3/8 6-4 titanium dowel pins (not installed).

The custom toy specific housing brackets would be nice. I just order a few items from you (via Carolina Truggy) as well as a competitor to see what I could mix/match and put together for my toy axled buggy.

* Brackets w/ 22 deg offset w/built in shock mounts for Hiems or small joint.
* Adjustable upper mounts 5",6",7" easily cut down, offered in 2 sets
- 1 set for mounting out near the knuckles ( I need these!)
- 1 set for standard center mounting

Agreed ^^

There was a guy on the yota forum that had some left hand drive ones (he was from new zealand i think). They were sick.

He added a keyway to his six stud arms too, something like this would be pimp

I would love to see a modular axle system for toy's similar to what spidertrax does with the 9" axles.

-Housing without ends built with either left, center or right pumpkins that can be cut to whatever width is desired
-Heavy duty ball & knuckle assemblies, or fabricated C & Knuckle assemblies that use toyota spindle & Hub assemblies - sizes for mini truck birfs & for FJ80 birfs
-Weld on ends for rear housings that allow a front spindle to bolt up to make a full floater
-Made for 8", 8.4" & 9.5" Diffs (maybe eventually the 10.5" tundra diffs)

Other ideas:

a knuckle ball gusset kit that is stronger/ cooler than the flat plate gussets that most places sell

solid steering stops

1/4" plate felt retainers to replace the stamped sheetmetal ones - these would be awesome run with the new UHMW seals that longfield just released

Reinvent the knuckle ball and make it beef.
Good high steer set up that wont shear off. 6 studs, keys, ect not some cast POS.
A new wheel hub as mentioned before, with integrated spline to run a drive slug and eliminate the little hub bolts.
A simple and effective full floater kit for the rear to use stock front spindles and your new pimp hubs.

I might consider going back to toyota axles then.

Id like to see an affordable front housing with beefy tubes no more need for gussets

Id also like to see a option of a fj third for the 9.5 ring I can garantee if you can up with something like this you'd be selling em like hot cakes as long as the price was reasonable.

I know it's a rear axle part but it's been mentioned before. How about an adapter to bolt a front axle spindle to the rear housing for full float. You could offer two versions, one with ears for GM calipers and one with ears for Toyota calipers. I'd be in for some Toyota adapters.

Nice truss and good price.

what about some truss for the short side that integrates the spring perch and knuckle ball gusset and possibly shock tabs? Also maybe some way to get rid of the spring perch underneath and still be able to use U-bolts... maybe some sort of weld in lower gusset?
DIY centersection that ppl could build their own axle. Just add tube and ends.

Outboarded shock mounts for the guys who are linking a toy front end. some pics in here:

http://pirate4x4.com/forum/showthrea...316&highlight=

Also, a double sheer steering set-up. No one offers either one of these products openly.

i would love to see a 3link mount kit for front axles, maybe even simple enough that it bases on the old spring perches with the lower link mounts at axle centerline.similar to this

Does anyone make a rear truss? Not that I have ever bent a rear housing outside of a rollover.

I know many people, including myself, have wrote off the FJ80 front axle immediately because of the steering issue. The second reason being cost. Now that these things are 12+ years old, they are getting easier to score at a reasonable rate. Either a new arm, or a knuckle/arm combo could be a unique product that would really stand out in the marketplace.

How about u-joint pinion flanges? There are several ways out there to throw something together, but it would be cool to see an affordable Toyota companion flange set up for say 1350 u-joints.
