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.

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.

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.

Hope this helps, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
