okie zuks coil kit with high steer problems

I am installing the horizon offroads / okie zuks coil kit with toyota axles. while waiting for the kit to arrive I ordered the trail tough high steer kit. When installing the front coil kit and high steer I found the tie rod hits the panhard bar. I was thinking I can move the lower panhard bar mount on the axle back closer to the coil. will that disturb the coil? , all I need is 3/4 of an inch, Has anybody done the swap and had this problem? I also know it is a problem on the RRO kit as well

I am having the same problem. Mine is a little more workable as I am running full hydro but still have to put the ram in a less than ideal location. Have you called horizon offroad yet? I have been meaning to but haven't gotten around to it yet. That definately needs to be fixed on future kits. I wish I had a solution for you but I don't. All I can say is cut off the tabs and relocate them further in directly to the axle. you'll have to shorten the panard bar a couple inches also.Let me know what Robert says when you talk to him.

Could you possibly put the tir rod in the front hole and the steering link in the back hole. This could igve you a bit more room forward on the passenger side and it might work. You could adjust the links co accomidate switching them around.

I would first call OKI as he prabably has an answer.

called him today, he said to do same as I was planning, moving the panhard bracket back towards the spring, he doesn't use any high steer stuff his rigs so that is why it was not made to acomadate the high steer kits

I'm sure this will come up again, so I'm working to see what I can do about the high steer arm issue. Moving the lower panhard mount back towards the coil may be an opition. Thanks, for bringing it up, Justin.

Total measurement was 2 5/8". I have ordered some 5/8 - 11 x 1 3/4" buttonhead bolts and will be here in 2-3 days. Also thinner nylock nuts to go with them. I can get down to 2 1/8" and move the next batch of kit brackets back 1/2" towards the spring. This is a full 1" and would solve the problem with highsteer arms:

I weld in the spacers so it's easier to assemble:

all steel locknuts are shorter than most nylon lock nuts.
want even more room, could use a flathead bolt instead - though that would require countersinking.

All steel locknut was taller than thin nylock in this case.

JUst an observation...
1) double check you still have clearance when the tires are turned in both directions because the Tie rod Moves back toward the axle.
2)Also for guys with High steer you may need to move the mounting point up into the same plane as the tie rod to prevent Bump steer.

Thanks, Scott. He was hitting at full turn. May need an adjustable tower to allow for different brands of arms. Something else to look into.

Early or late model axle? What links do you have, upper and lower? What hardware do you need?
