I am in the process of mounting my hydro assist to a narrowed d60 with high steer in my scout II. I am looking for ideas as to the best way to do it. Can those who have mounted a similar set up (in any vehicle with leaves) respond with a description and/or picture of how they did it (ie back side of steering arm, center link, front of steering arm, etc) Thanks in advance.

The fixed end of the ram goes to a mount that is welded to the top of the punkin and the yoke on the shaft goes to a mount on the back side of the tierod. The mount on the top of the housing has been changed to a 3/4 rod streight up so the ram can pivot, not horrizontal like the one shown.

Best one I have at work right now. I had a another ram that :nuke: on me so thats what the mount you see on the top of the pumpkin was for, then new mount is lower and I just used some tabs. Other side is on the tierod, pretty straightforward.

My shocks are outside the leafsprings on the lower part of the inner C of the 60. I run dual shocks and they are centered over the centerline of the axle tube.

attach ram to frame and run to pitman arm
Sounds like a good way to rip your frame apart.

Mine is welded to the front of the axle and to the rear of the tie rod. If rocks beat it to death I'll go hi-steer and move it.

Here are some shots of mine. I made the steering arms, behind the axle tie rod, ram tower on long side tube, shocks half on on steering knuckle inner C's

I just did mine last week so I understand the challenge of mounting the ram with high steer. Here is a pic of mine that shows both the shock mount and ram Mount. I just took a 4" piece o4 2X4 tubing and cut it as you see in the pic. The mounting stud is actually a 3/4 X 6" grade 8 bolt that is welded inside the tubing. I also welded a tube adapter to the end or my ram so I could use a hiem.... Hope it helps
