    Anybody made their own Cat 1 top n' tilt kit?

    I've found a few options for building my own top link from some other members and just from poking around the internet, but I am having less luck figuring out an option for a hydraulic side link.

    Cat 1 on a 2032r.

    Feasant - nice work routing the hoses. That looks great.

    I was just going to ask how you got the fittings perpendicular to the tie rod ends. :-) I'm surprised more places do not offer cylinders with both orientations.

    BTW... don't you just hate the way the 2720 rear wheels throw dirt and stones up and they wedge themselves in that narrow crevice between the axle housings and the ROPS mount. It is impossible to keep that area clean. I'm waiting for one to jam in there and puncture the housing.

    Did you have to cut and weld the top link or the side link? Both?

    Both.

    the top link had the ports vertical and that caused the hoses to hit the crossbar behind the seat. so i cut the end off, rotated it and welded it back on.

    the side link came with cross tube ends which had to be replaced with the forked brackets to fit the lift arms.
