Anyone had experience with Unistear rack and pinion kits for 28-32 fords?

They offer two types of kit. One is designed to replace the vega cross steering set ups, and the other is designed to be center mounted under the spring perch. I'm considering the later.
I'd appreciate any feedback on either version.

I have the one in my 32 3W that replaces the VEGA

I like it. I have almost 9 thousand miles on it and it drives good. I have a VEGA box in my 32 roadster and they drive differently. Both drive OK but just have a different road feel.

I used the same one as Deuce. I replaced a Vega unit after using it for hundreds of miles. They do drive differently but the Unisteer was much nicer.
