As far as I know the 6 bolt knuckles haven't been released yet. Marlin is still finishing up testing on them. Last I heard it was going to be early next year when they'll be released. However you can still get the 6 bolt high steer arms so your ready for when they do come out.

I think the 6 bolt stuff is a little extreme though. If you keep all your stuff torqued down properly you shouldn't have a problem with the standard non-billet 4 bolt arms & stock knuckles.

Also, why do you think you need new knuckles? are your old ones cracked? They're not usualy something that just wears out... But I guess if ya got the $$$ burning a hole in your pocket, go for it.



Also for which high steer kit to get: do you already have an IFS box & pitman arm? or do you just have the box with no arm? cause that determine if you want the type 1 or type 2 highsteer kit.



I think you best bet is probably to call marlin or post a question on thier forum. They're really helpful about making sure you get what you need with out trying to sell you stuff that would be overkill for what you do.

Sky-mfg makes great stuff as well and you can save some tax with them since they're from Oregon where there's no sales tax.




And for Birfs, there's nothing better than the new chromoly longfield stuff www.longfieldsuperaxles.com

DO NOT buy the ProFields. They are junk and actually weaker than stock.

Or if you want local Smurfs are supposed to be very good for the price too.

The ott highsteer is a better set up if you are not going with the six bolt nuckles it uses a beefyer e150 tirod ends and heavyer walled tubing for the tie rod and drag link also for renforced birfs i have been toying around with them with some good results so far let me know if your interested travis dose an awsome job on the smirfs aswell

OTT stuff is nice, but I found it takes forever to get anything from them. But that was last winter, I dunno if they are still backlogged.

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!

Ive got the ott setup works well and its local think it was $650 + tax all u need is an ifs box and the rest is a simple bolt in. haven't been able to bend or break anything yet.

i have the ott high steer and its strong as all hell i ripped the studs off the top of my knuckle befor anthing happened to my hysteer dont get the wrong impression it wasnt the hysteer that screwed up. i colapsed my top knuckle bearing and it put a lot of stress on those four bolts. i drove down eagle ridge with duck tape and a zap strap holding the hysteer to the knuckle DUCK TAPE solves all!!!!!!

The only low thing u should drive is a lawn mower!

the E150 rod ends in the ott kit are quite a bit beefyer than the fj 80 rod ends the fj 80 usses the same taper and ball and socet assemblt as a minni truck it just has a lager shank
