Alright before i get flamed... id love to be searching and searching but the search function is apparently down at the moment. I am looking for some help on how to steer a fullwidth 44 on my 94 yota. Does anyone sell a complete hi'steer for this? i see that "shakerbuilt" can make a setup but have no prices. Tryin to figure this out. thanks

Not sure if there's a kit complete for this but it should be easy enough to get some highsteer arms, mill and drill ( i assume you have flattops?), I'd say use d60 tre's, get weld in's from Poison Spider for 1.5 .250 dom and make your own tie rod and draglink, Get a pittman arm from Sky reamed for the d60 tre's, put it all together. Piece of cake.:)

Yup got flat top knuckles... alright thats what im beginning to realize. peice by peice is gonna be about my only option. I now see that Sky makes "special order" d44 pitman arms. that looks to be the route ill go.

I sugest you get crossover/highsteer arms for both knuckles. it will help to keep your tie rod out of the evil :evil: rocks:evil: !! offroaddesign.com is a good place to look. I have heard good things about there products. I am doing my highsteer/crossover like the picture below, the pic is of a yota, mine is a D44 though.

Sky, Shaker, and Parts Mike are all great vendors.

It will be WAY easier to set it up with standard lo-steer crossover than hi-steer though. The 44 steering arms are really long, and unless you don't move your axle forward at all, or you move your steering box WAY forward, the TR and DL will interfere with each other. Or unless you run a really tall lift. :rolleyes:

Check out my SAS page for some info:

Notice how my DL is actually behind my TR:


I just run a Rockstomper sleeved TR and it takes the beatings from the rocks just fine. Nothing to worry about. RS doesn't make them anymore, but Shaker does.

Mine has been under there for 5+ years now.

Do you have to move the steering box forward when you put a D44 or D60 with high steer and use the rear springs up front from a 93 P/U?

I'd search for this. I would think that any time you use rears up front you're gonna have to move the box.

you prob don't have to just to install a d44. you will want to so you can run a larger tire and keep it out of the fire wall by moving your front axle as far forward as possible.
