Steering link question

Steering link question - 04/18/22 10:31 PM

Have 91 4l 5 speed montero.
Will a gen 2 steering center link fit on a gen 1?

Also, does anybody have a source to buy a center link for my montero?

I believe the original part was from 555

There's a couple guys over on the Montero USA Exchange page that get used parts like that all the time for people. Owen Montero and Christopher Leon come to mind. MMUSAE
Weird that wasn't listed on rockauto.com
What happened to yours, bent from an accident or big tires?

Thanks for the suggestion. Cant find a steering center link anywhere online.. i will join the group and check it out. I am also going to the capital city here in Colombia and look for a second hand one. Previous owner hit something and towed in the wheels a little bit. Was able to adjust the tierods to get the alignment right so it wasnt too bad. But after i installed my ome shocks the tierod rubbed on my new shock and totally ruined my day.

Tangent question if you happen to know... Installed my arb/ome suspension and got a 2 inch lift out of it. At least in the back. Been trying to think of a way to get the front higher and still get some drop travel. My idea was to het some gen 2 ucas, then install some ball joint extensions/spacers so i have more room to crank up the torsion bars a bit more and still have space between the bump stops. So my question is, if i go that route with my 4cyl will i run into any problems or surprises?
