You didn't hear this from me. If you get another stock passenger side steering arm... you could have someone who does fabrication weld the two together. That will give you a place to connect your drag link. Then you just need an IFS box and a beefy drag link.

Unless you know someone who does good fab work for very cheap, it would probably make more sense just to buy High-Steer arms.

i was woundering if there was any way to make a cheap high stear set up :confused:

Sure, there is. The only drawback is, you might die. And take others with you possibly. Worth it? No. If you cant afford to at least pony up for proper steering, then wheeling probably isnt the hobby for you.

He asked about High steer, not cross over. With double arms your TR is still below the springs. :flipoff2:

True. On the other hand, low cross-over is still worlds better than push/pull. I just thought I'd throw out the option. I have a cross-over arm that was built by a metal shop teacher using 2 stockers. Not something I would do myself, but if its done right it works great.

Talk to W at Over The Hill. He set me up with an economical solution. http://www.overthehill4x4.com/index.html He simply reshaped my FJ60 arms to clear the springs and re-tapered the duoble TRE to flip the drag link to the rear.
are you saying heated and bent the stock cast arms :eek:

My understanding is that these are forged arms, not cast. They appear to have the same construction as the Toy pitman arms. I know I have seen numerous pitmans cut/welded or heated/bent with success.
No auto manufacturer uses cast anything for steering components period. Anyone who says they're cast is just ignorant. Factory Toyota steering arms are most definately forged steel. I won't recomend welding your own crossover arm, but, and a big but, if done properly by a skilled welder they can be made as strong as the factory supplied them.

Now let the doubters chim in. :flipoff2:
