I was under a buddy of mines stock 85 runner the other day and noticed that the stock torque rod was almost parallel to the draglink. On my 84 the torquerod had been extended before I got it to make up for the 5" susp lift but it is at a severe angle down in relation to the s- shaped draglink that is on my rig. It would be my guess that I need to fabricate a raised mount for the rod on the axle end to try to regain some of this geometry. I know that crossover is the way to go but I have until december before I graduate college so its out of the question right now. Thanks for any and all input.

The drag link and torque arm are supposed to be at the same angle. You don't have to do anything to it until you're ready for the crossover. Then cut the torque arm mount off.

My torque rod is not parallel to the actual part of the draglink coming off of the steering arm. It is more parallel to the curved part of the dropped draglink. I am gonna experiment with the raised mount on the axle to see if I can make my truck steer and handle a little better. Thanx fer de input fellas.
