The pull of the dark side must be strong with this one. Struggles, he does. Resisting, he is always...






Besides, you ran 6psi and beadlocks too. Float? Not so much. 300 freakin' horsepower, maybe... but not float.

Okay, so it is cast iron. So thats right out for welding, if I'm reading this right.

Looks like I'm off to the drawing board again.

I have 6 PSC heims that i got a long time ago for a project that never came to fruition. TRE's develop slop too. Lots of it.

The new things will have to be milled most likely. I'll be researching more, but its looking like that.

Weird part is, there is a company that advocates welding to these things. Wonder how they get past the dangerousness of it in their legal stuff?

My FJ80 TREs have not developed slop in six years.

Before I put in the Marlinks with new TRE's my 80 still had the original TRE's so that puts them at 9 years and running! If it's a tractor or dedicated rock rig...go heim steering links....if it is a dual purpose or DD go TRE!

Looks like I'm not going to have a choice.

TRE's will have to go in, since there is no way to weld in double shear with the cast iron.

Bummer.

As for play, I'm not following that at all. I see heims sold as UPGRADED steering systems for both IFS Toyotas, SA toyotas, and like every other axle out there. If they are that bad, why are companies using them?

Biggest issue is dirt! No way to keep it out of them! There is greasable heims but they are still not sealed so that give something else for grit to get held with!
