I've just about had enough of my car's old school steering! I have gone from power steering to manual which was a big difference but it still isn't right.. So I'm thinking about going rack and pinion but I'm wondering what ones you are using in your cars.. My car is a 67 fastback with a 4spd, 351w stroker motor, full length headers (not sure of the brand bought them off ebay, I think they are blackjack???) I have heard mixed comments about the flamming river units. Total control? Randalls Rack?? Anyone else make them? What would be my best bet?
Thanks for the help
Tom

Your best bet would be to search this forum and others for threads about R&P steering setups. It is a hot topic, and you will get lot all your questions answered with a search.

After that, I would suggest not using terms like "old school" to descibe things. Shelby drops are old school, and they aren't bad.

Not certain, but I think Randall's will fit. He is really a great guy and has done a lot of R&D. I just got his set up for my 66 which will have a 351w and shorty headers. I waited for his redesigned member that is supposed to fit with headers. If you e-mail him, I'm sure he'll quickly respond. I have the rack installed but not the engine. It's a really nice unit.

I still can't get over your high $/age ratio. Wish I had your good fortune.

Check out the new unit from Speeddirect. They have been doing this for years for Chevy's, and have just released a Mustang version. They are going slow, and trying to understand our cars and needs. I have the rack in my car, and have had the engine in and out to test fit headers. They have a partial list of the headers that do and don't fit.

Their design is similar to the TCP unit, but much lower cost. They start at $1150 for the power steering rack kit, and a bit more if you want the tilt column. you can find them at Speeddirect

Best,

Brian

I totally endorse RANDALLS RACKS mine is awsome and the shaft from the collum to the rack runs close to the frame where the old box was ( accually there is more room than with the old box) The pump and brackets supplied with the randalls really cleans up the engine compartment. ::
