    83 4x4 Steering and Suspension Questions.

    Not 100% sure to be honest. Looking at my old rag joint, it doesn't look like any of the other ones I've seen in write-ups. Mine was just a flat disc and didn't have any spacing. My steering shaft also had a u-joint at the top and a rag joint at the bottom.

    Thanks! The truck has "good bones" for a neat little project. I'll attach some more photos for y'all. Truck came with a rebuilt TK-5 to swap from the TK-4 as well as another set of wheels and a box full of efi stuff and a power steering setup. Window channel rust has been repaired and the...

    83 4x4 Steering and Suspension Questions.

    You'd be correct in your assumption. My family is primarily Chevy people, and when my folks heard that I traded my 91 Formula Firebird for this Danger Ranger, they damn near had a fit.

    @dvdswan If I could possibly post a video, you'd definitely see what I mean. The young man I got the truck from thought the steering box just needed tightened. He drove the truck in this state for 2 years, and 20k+ miles not knowing that the steering coupler was literally about to fall apart...

    Thank you @RobbieD. California Original Truck, very minimal rust, if any that hasn't already been repaired in it's past. I've taken a look at both, nothing in polyurethane, which isn't a total deal breaker considering the age of the truck. I'm not sure if the 2.0 and the 2.3 are identical...

    83 4x4 Steering and Suspension Questions.

    Thankfully, my truck is factory manual steering. Optioned out to be as Basic as possible with no A/C or really any other creature comforts. I'm not worried about a little NVH, as my body mounts have already been replaced with what appeares to be polyurethane. As long as it's not completely...

    83 4x4 Steering and Suspension Questions.

    Good Evening! I had a couple questions for you folks. Picked up an '83 2.3, 4x4, Manual, Dual Tank Longbed the other day that needs TLC. Engine mounts are pretty much gone and my steering coupler bushing is absolutely flogged. I've found a polyurethane transmission mount, but I can't seem to...
