Soon I will be working on the 2014 Toyota Tundra Rack & Pinion.
There are a few obstacles in the way, but nothing that can’t be worked out.
The distance between the barrel mounts is off by 1” the Fj is 15.5” and the Tundra rack is 16.5”. The mount on the driver side needs to be relocated by 1” outward. I have to weld/fab a 1/2” cold rolled steel plat from the bottom to support the new location for the barrel mount.
Also the steering intermediate shaft needs to be shorten since the pinion gear is much larger in diameter and taller.
The “RAM” on the Tundra rack needs to be shortened from both ends and retapped, and since I don’t know what type of steel Toyota is using, I will send the ram to my sister so she can heat treated it to whichever Rockwell/hardness scale she determines.
The rack is on its way to me from Dallas and this will take a while and I am positive I can make it work.
The Rack & Pinion on the FJ is the weakest link, everything else can be beefed up, and this way I don’t have to go SAS hopefully.
