Toyota LandCruiser Heavy Duty One Piece Swivel Housing
Marks 4WD manufacture a heavy duty, one piece Toyota LandCruiser swivel housing / steering arm for vehicles fitted with a live front axle and coil springs. The housing is machined to be serviced with a standard front end rebuild, the housings are also machined to accept the ABS wheel speed sensors (80 & 105 Series only) should they be fitted to your vehicle.The new swivel housing has been designed for maximum strength without introducing any new serviceable parts such as the king pin bearings and seals.
Advantages of our Swivel Housings:
- One piece design - no bolt on arm to come loose
- Factory swivel housing rebuild used
- RHD or LHD compatible
- Made from heat treated cast SGI
- Fits all coil spring live axle LandCruisers (up to 08/2012)
- Runs the larger 70 series rod end
The steering arms and the swivel housing have been cast as one piece. This design eliminates the four stud and collet design in the lower king pin housing which are notorious for coming loose when the vehicle is used in harsh off road conditions.
The housings have been designed to suit left or right hand drive vehicles.
The housing is made from heat treated cast SGI. The housings are fully machined leaving a small machining allowance on the bores and faces. They are then heat treated which also stress relieves them prior to painting and the final machining operation.
Toyota's run 2 different sized rod ends - we have machined our swivel housings to accept the larger rod end as fitted to 70 Series vehicles.
The original Toyota shims are used to set the king pin bearing preload.
