Couple Questions

Steering Box - -

I need to mount a box on the out side of the frame rail on my zuk since im doin the 4.3 swap, i have a chevy pump and got the hook up on making hyrdo lines, what steering box would be the best and to snag from a Junk Yard?

Rear Springs - -

I need to move the rearend back to get some driveshaft between my sami case and the Land Cruiser rear axle, ti currently sits on YJ springs, theyre mounted in the stock location of the samurai springs, i wanna do a missing link , i already have the link from an older sami, and can build the mount, but what do yall think about Xj springs in the rear or even Dakota springs? YJ guys were talkin 6 inch stretch to XJ springs and 10 inches on dakotas,, i need ya'll ideas,,,

Alot of guys run steering boxs off of a astro van, toy ifs, toy fj.

Why run 63in chevys when you can run Ford Ranger Springs 57in and you get the same amount of stretch just there isnt so much much hanging off the back that will hang up on everything thats what i run in the back of my sami they work good.

Id be intrested to see some dakota/durango springs. I guess they got a big offset to so not as much overhang.

You just can not beat the departure angle you will have with the dakota/durango springs

well the TG sight made for some good learnin,,,, i was wanting to run an astro box from the get go but lack of space between the frame rails had me looking, the three junk yard around here are big, worth searching for that fj60/62 box, might be able to get that front axle out there afterall!
