A rod builder on a different website instructed me that the Scout 2 gear box is normally mounted in front of the axle with pitman arm facing forward. If I use behind the axle then car would turn wrong direction. I may be able to turn the pitman arm 180 degrees but I think it may be difficult to to fit the Scout 2 gearbox behind the control arms with the Pitman mounted rearward. A different possibility may be a 4runner ifs gearbox. Standard mount is in front of axle with a rearward pitman arm (see picture). If I mount behind axle for rear steer & can turn pitman arm 180 degrees then should give me the result I want.
1) Does anyone know if a 4runner ifs Pitman arm can be mounted in forward position?
2) Prefer to use Saginaw. Does anyone know of a Saginaw steer box that mounts on outside of frame and would operate in this manner?
Thanks
