Upgrade your Land Cruiser’s weak steering links with our Heavy Duty DOM Marlink 80-series steering link upgrade kit! This is the only Heavy Duty kit on the market that does not sacrifice your factory steering stabilizer location.

The Relay rod uses a 21mm thread which is more then sufficient for the stresses the steering gear sector staff could handle. Some kits on the market use carryover parts from their Mini truck product lines. Not us. We want you to keep factory integrity and use proper replacement parts that are designed for you 80-series. The Real problem we see with factory 80-series steering is the tubing size of the steering links and the pinch clamp retention design. We have solved this by increasing the link wall thickness and using a jam nut retention design.

What’s included?

  • (1) 23mm right hand thread TRE with castle nut & cotter pin
  • (1) 23mm left hand thread TRE with castle nut & cotter pin
  • (1) Heavy Duty DOM Marlink Tie Rod drilled & tapped for 23mm TREs (unpainted)
  • (1) 21mm right hand thread TRE with castle nut & cotter pin
  • (1) 21mm left hand thread TRE with castle nut & cotter pin
  • (1) Heavy Duty DOM Marlink Relay Rod drilled & tapped for 21mm TREs (unpainted)

All Tie Rod Ends are manufactured in Japan by 555, an original Toyota supplier, and our pair of Heavy Duty Marlinks are made in the USA from USA DOM steel tubing!

NOTE: Some components may need paint to prevent rust. To ensure the best rust protection always treat parts annually even when they are manufactured with a anti-corrosive treatment.

Compare Our Kit vs. Typical Aftermarket Kit

Below left is a typical approach to “upgrading” the FJ80 steering system that alters the factory design of the steering stabilizer mount by using an over-the-counter u-bolt kit adopted from a Mini Truck. This is not what we do! Marlin Crawler’s Heavy Duty Kit utilizes full USA-made Heavy Duty DOM Marlink tubing with an authentic Japanese-made OEM rely rod upper tie rod end featuring a proper tapered steering stabilizer mount. The difference is huge! Our employees have wheeled FJ80’s, FZJ80’s, and LX450’s and would never compromise for such a horrible and unreliable modification to their steering system.

Cheap kits misalign the stabilizer, placing it
in a bind that will soon become loose

Marlin Crawler’s HD kit uses
the original mounting location!

Not only does our kit mount the stabilizer correctly, but it uses the proper Toyota tapered hardware that OEM and aftermarket stabilizers come with for a proper strong, sturdy, and long lasting mount. Using a tapered bolt with a flat plate, the typical aftermarket kit becomes loose overtime from its wobbly and out of alignment fit. We cannot recommend that for your Land Cruiser!
