High Steer Kit
Kit includes Stage 6 billet steering arms, tie rod, drag link, FJ-80 ends, jam nuts, and pitman arm adapter. All USA made steel links and Chrome moly steering arms. Sky Manufacturing steering arms have properly machined conical tapers. This allows them to hold torque over other arms. Sky Manufacturing also has shortened the tie rod/ drag link to king pin distance, increasing turning radius, eliminating tie rod to drag link interference, and allowing springs with more arch. Cross over steering requires at least a 4 inch suspension lift!
We also offer the option of a new forged pit man arm vs the adapter!
Please Note, due to using US made steel and tube, and the difficulty in finding US made material, Toyota Steering kits may take up to a week to ship!

Toyota mini truck, solid axle equipped brake lines.
Does not replace factory hard steel lines on the front calipers, these are available separately.
26" Overall Length.
Braided Stainless Steel.

A U-bolt flip kit removes the stock square U-bolts and lower plates, replacing them with round U-bolts and new plates that mount on the top of your springs, adding at least 1.250 inch's of clearance under your axles. We use 9/16ths grade 8 U-bolts front and rear. The rear u bolt flip plate does not include shock tabs, they are available for $12 set. The spring plates are constructed of 1/4 inch steel, not thinner stamped and slotted 3/16ths as some competitors shops sell.
Why buy a Sky's U-Bolt Flip Kit?
The main reason we started assembling our own flip kits was that we had trouble installing other kits. The problem, many didn't take into account that the differential side of the front axle required a larger U- bolt on the inside. We decided our kit needed to fit with a larger U-bolt, and we used grade 8 USA made 9/16ths U-bolts without any problems. We also had interference problems with moving the axle forward, and hitting the tie rod with the ear of the spring plate. We have our plates shortened slightly, and bent at a 90* angle. Those 2 modifications solved the steering interference problem.
Note that some 84-85 axles require sanding the factory axle weld seam to fit the u bolts over the axle tube.
Sky's u-bolt flips are not universal, we have rear kits, and front kits for either the 85-84 or 79-83 axle. Please spec which you are needing when ordering. Crossover steering is required for front axle application.
Front Shock Hoops
As seen on Pirate 4x4 our shock hoop kit allows the use of longer shocks, looks trick and is easy to install.
Built from USA manufactured, .120" wall 1.5" HREW tubing, eye style shock mounts fit 5/8ths shocks, 1.5 inch width. Mig/TIG welded, and includes 2 triangle style plate steel gussets.
Measurement of hoops is, 12" from frame weld mount center to shock eye center. Angled at 15 degree's outward, overall width is 12". Fits all solid axle equipped Toyota pickup and 4-Runners including SAS factory and conversion vehicles 1979-95. Will fit many other vehicles as well, Tacoma's, s-10's etc. Please refer to above dimensions to check if they will fit your vehicle!
Sky's Shock mounting tabs are 1/4 inch! Not thinner 1/8th as some companies use, which can fail under extreme use.
Welding and general fabrication skills required
Manufactured in Oregon, from USA steel!
