With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thats a "Second Strut" on teh TM kit. It takes the place of the UCA.

Interestingly enough......There are many vehicles that use the "Second Strut" design. No new vehicles mind you......but some older ones.

if you don't have stock UCA's already you'll need to get some. I imagine junkyard UCA's would be fine as long as they weren't damaged.

You will also need a new crossmember for the front diff. IIRC, the TM kit cuts the OEM on out.

The ones Ive seen had them cut out. Unless you have a Prerunner. Then they just mount the new one over the old.
