I have a 84 runner and have a 7" lift with the 4" drop draglink from skyjacker.

It was fine until I decided to lift the front another 2" via shackles

now the draglink hits the U-bolt.

Has anyone modified that curved arm that comes off the knuckle and attatches to the link.

I can either flip the ball to the topside or cut the arm and flip it and weld with a sleeve.

not sure what to do.

flip the ball .
large press is needed , because its tapered , and you'll have to grind off the top , and re weld , but its a good fix .

why so much lift? Hack the fenders and lower it a bit. you'll be more stable.

sounds like pavement princess to me... must get some nasty bump steer with the stock stuff

the steering has been more than fine and I have 36's and they are hitting the firewall when I flex. so by putting longer shackles, it pivots my axle forward away from the fender and also corrects my negative castor problem.

I do plan on changing over to crossover steering later I just dont have the time or money or a garage right now.

put hysteer on or move your front diff forward.but you should have the hysteer.

DRIVE IT LIKE U STOLED IT.

I flipped the ball and it fixed everything. I dont have any noticeable bump steer with this setup, but like I said I will be changing to hy-steer in the spring.
thanx for the confidence boost slacker, Im always a little nervous when I try a mod that I havent had time to research if its safe or not.

The ball flip I have seen done a number of times. I was gonna do it to my 81 as I was having the same issues. But laws of gravity took over *SHIT* Technically if DOT inspects your truck haveing that ball on top and welded I am sure would send up a red flag. But meh, next spring you'll be lagit, so I say DO IT! And yes I agree it is totally safe and nothing wrong with flipping the ball.

I had a: 81' Toyota, 2.5L 22RE, Celica EFI retro'd in, A340H Auto, 10" of lift, TSL 35x16 Boggers, 437 gears, Rear Detroit Locker, Onboard Air, Pimpin BULL BOLLZ!
