You’ve added the horsepower, upgraded the brakes, and put in a new transmission, but that old steering box is a major downer when you consider all those improvements you’ve made. Sloppy or sluggish steering can diminish the responsiveness and enjoyment you would like to experience while driving your classic automobile. A rack and pinion conversion can give you the excitement you deserve. For that we turn to Speed Direct and their line of Steeroids rack and pinion conversion kits. We have installed several of their kits and prefer the Steeroid kits because they are a bolt on system with no modifications necessary, which makes them easy to install, and they allow for bump steer adjustments. In this video we go over the pre-assembly of a rack and pinion unit, for a C2-C3 Corvette, prior to installation. While some units differ from application to application, the process is pretty much the same and this video will steer you in the right direction.
