Best steering setup for L/T Street Truck
« on: March 11, 2008, 09:23:27 PM »
I am building a long travel setup for my truck. It will be primarily a street truck but also see some action on the weekends. What do you guys think I should do for my steering? The truck is an older Toyota pickup.

I've had friends build those trucks and use the stock rack no problem.. thats my vote.

If its going to see mostly pavement, stock rack will be fine for a while. If you're going to be hammering the truck out in the dirt a lot.. plan on replacing it several times or having to upgrade to an aftermarket rack.

Seems pretty common sense... if you're gonna be pounding the crap out of something, wouldn't you want it beefed up? The steering system takes a LOT of abuse in offroad application, give it some love!
