The conversion was done on mine, before I owned it. Was power steering optional in the LN106?

Yes pretty sure AC was a standard item and P/S an option :crazy:


A P/S fan clutch and radiator are also neccessary as the originals lower hose is in the wrong position and the fan clutch will not clear the new pulleys.

A friend of mine has strong arm steering in his 87 triton. Can a P/S conversion be done easily on his?

Not sure mate I imagine that if there is a model of his vehicle/engine with P/S from the factory then all the gear associated could be sourced and fitted to his just like we did with the LN106 lux. Google could be you best friend with this.

Thanks, might look into it now. Just depends on what mods are more important for him on his bitsamissin triton. :) All 4WD's should have P/Steering as standard!:thumb:

Its called the torque rod and it stops axle wrap under braking and accelerating. They do occassionally crack at either end if the lux has seen a long life of torture or hard roads, having taller more flexible springs without upgrading to an adjustable torque rod will c extra stress put on it also.

Yes the diffs are interchangeable front to rear, as far as gear stick boots go your best bet wud be to try the wreckers for a good condition one that fits, Or u could try an auto store or the net for a universal rubber bellow type.

No not neatly or easily as the body dimensions are different. With a bit of panel beating or modification they may tho.
