Our patented line of high performance center-take-off rack and pinions enables correct geometry and a level of positive, direct steering that is not possible with adapted OEM units. Both manual and power versions feature quick ratio, straightcut gears, requiring only three turns lock-to-lock (standard OEM 4-5/8 turns, Performance OEM 3-3/4 turns). The unique modular design utilizes an assortment of mounting brackets and centerlinks to adapt to various classic Ford/Mercury vehicles including Mustangs, Cougars, Falcons, Comets and Rancheros.Existing factory mounting locations are used whenever possible to simplify rack installation. Once installed, the rack becomes a rigid crossmember bracing the lower control arm mounts; an improvement over the original bent tubular design. Mounting brackets along with the centerlink are specific to engine type and are used to vary the height of the rack as needed for oil pan clearance.NOTE: Installation of rack-and-pinion system on '60-65 Falcons and '64-66 Mustangs requires V8 spindles and tie-rod assemblies.
