Haven't decided on make to use yet. Just looking for information on hydro assist being used on a stock (1988) IFS front end. Everything I've seen has been geared towards straight axle front ends.

the latest (i think) petersons mag has an f150 that they stuck hydro on. it uses a wayyyyy long double ended ram, and fits right in the middle.

Talked to a couple of manufacturers and the call is that no one makes a kit for an ifs front end. To bad. Not off road alot, but got little skinny grandpa arms.

88 toyota, true track front and back, high performance 22re, lectric fan, mile marker hydraulic winch (10,000lb) 6" lift, High volume pump to go with it. And gone thru from front to back, new bearings, tie rods, rebuilt the tranny replaced the interior, bucket seats, disc brakes on rear axle, and dun it all myself. Just trying to figure out what's next. scf

running 33 inch tires right now. nothing extreme. I figure I can cobble something together, just a lot easier if you have an example to look at. Already have the drilled steering box. Did that when I replaced it. Just have to take the plugs out to use it. Guess Ill just have to crawl underneath and do some visualizing. (Also put some HID lights in it.)

The stock toyota power steering should easily be able
to handle 33's....
edit; what will wear out is the idler arm....

gotta remember that steering bar is not very strong, they actually recalled them for breakage issues. i would think that adding a hydro assist to a stock toyota link steering system is a time bomb.
man-up, start drinking your carrot juice, do some curls (not the 12oz ones either), get them grampa arms back in shape. straight axle that truck, get crossover and highsteer, then start thinking hydro assist.

in my opinion if you are running big enough tires to even consider hydro assist, you shouldnt be running ifs anymore

Agree!

honest solution, buy a larger diameter steering wheel. if you have skinny grandpa arms, hopfully you have a skinny grandpa gut, a bigger wheel will give you much better steering feel and preserve you stock steering components from the stress of the hydro assist
