Coming up short or long

Does any one know of a company that makes or remanufactures Rack and Pinions that would work for a ton truck. The problem is it a custom non-standard size of 21. Some one may make one but without stating a Year, Make and Model its hard to find one. I talked to Woodward for quit a wile and to keep it short racing R&P would not work well on the street.

Mike

Maval makes a half/rack ... that could be short enough ...

It might work ... my main concern would be the strength ... your vehicle being a 3/4 ton

They also make a wide variety of remanufactured racks and other conversions.

Try Durex in Elmonte, Ca.
800-635-8658

They are steering rack and box rebuilders and have done some special work on some stuff for me.

Tregg is the manager and a very knowledgable guy.

They have a website also. http://www.durexpowersteering.com/

Hope this helps, mikey
