I think my main concern would be the baby sized CVs in the Jimny front axle and the 2 pin diff, quite a bit weaker than samurai Units but at least the CVs can be upgraded.

Yes absolutely. RSMFG supply 4 Pin conversion units to overcome this and allow you to fit a lockright if you wanted. Robs is also selling 26 spline chromemoly front shafts and HD CVs :rockin: Nice to see more bits available for Jimnys.

Hey i know this is an old thread but i have a question. I went to my local Mercedes Dealer because i wanted to order a new steering arm to use on my samurai. I wanted to just buy the Arm for the Passenger side of the Samurai so i could make a new Drag link and keep the stock tierod down in the stock location. Anyways i went and i ordered A new Arm from Mercedes part # 1163321720 which is said to be the right side. I got it home and noticed that it points towards the tire as if they sent me the wrong arm, the packaging says the correct part number. What im wondering does the Mercedes left arm go on the left side samurai and right mercedes on the right side. I just would like to find out if i ordered the correct arm but got sent the wrong one in the package.
