Will hi-steer work with SUA?

I finally picked up the toyota axles and rebuilt engine for my build and I'm running the issues I will encounter putting these axles under my jeep through my head while I'm away at work.

The first issue is the steering box on a toyota is mounted so that the pitman arm is vertical and moves front to back rather than side to side. To make this work toyota used a driver side steering arm with a standard tierod connection off the front and a J-shaped arm off the rear that wraps around the shock to make the pitman arm connection.

The second issue is that the steering is set up like a YJ with the drag link being connected to the tie rod, so the passenger side arm only has one hole in it.

All of this means I will have to replace the steering arms. So far it seems no one makes a set of arms that aren't for hi-steer. So I figure, meh, it's only money (wish my wife thought the same thing ) and will drop $200+ on a set but I'm not sure if hi steer will work with my SUA set up.

The Jeep is staying SUA with a 4" BDS lift and 1/2" shackles.

I don't want to spend that much cake just to run into clearance issues from the tie rod and drag link moving up a couple inches and the frame and track bar etc. being a couple inches lower than they would be if it was SOA.


'84 CJ-17: 17" stretch, locked Toy axles, 5.5" lift, FI, AX15, D300 w/twin sticks, boatsides & junk.
