The stock steering just cant keep pace with todays super flexible suspension systems. This results in broken stock steering arms and loss of steering at critical times. Trail Gears high steer kit features super beefy, solid forged steering arms, heavy duty pitman arm, heavy duty .250in. wall steering rods, and tie rod ends. Precision fit for easy assembly.
This kit totally eliminates the problem of broken steering knuckles and studs. The addition of two studs in each arm effectively prevents the steering arm from becoming loose and shearing off the studs. The knuckle housing is also thicker than stock and larger gussets have been added around the outside of the knuckle for extra strength. Precision machined, each knuckle is direct bolt on, heavy duty replacement knuckle.
Trail-Gear is the originator of forged high steer arms for Toyota Pickups and 4Runners. Each arm is pressure Forged from 8620 tool steel, these arms are incredibly strong. All mounting surfaces are machined including the split washer surface and the tie rod tapered holes, ensuring correct and positive contact between parts, preventing knuckle studs and tie rod ends from coming loose. Arms are angle compensated so that the rod ends ride at the factory designed 90 degree angle.
This drag link is made from .250in. wall DOM 1.25in. tubing, precision tapped, and features a left side thread mark. Each rod is test fitted to ensure that rod ends thread in with correct fit. Powder coat black finish.
These replacement boots are made to fit Trail-Gear FJ 80 TRE, and many other popular tie rod ends.

Installation is a snap, all that is required is some grease and a pair of snap ring pliers.
If you're running a high volume/pressure pump your system is generating much more heat then the stock system. Fluid overheating can cause damage to steering pump and steering box. Installing a oil cooler in front of the radiator is the best way to prevent this over heating. Our cooler features a fin area of 9 inch X 8 inch and does a great job of keeping the steering fluid temps under control in all conditions. Mounting kit is included with the oil cooler.
Trail-Gear offers TC style power steering pump pulleys for both serpentine and v-belt style belts. All pulleys are precision CNC machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum and anodized red for a sharp look that will last for years to come. The center hole bore diameter is .660 inch and the total outside diameter of the pulley is 4 3/4 inch.
