rack & pinion

I have a 1933 chevy pickup truck with tubular control arm suspension system. It has rack and pinion steering, that does not
have enough travel. I am looking for a power steering rack and pinion that has a travel that has a 6 !/2 inch to a 7 inch travel.

Rack and pinion

I assume that you have a Mustang II style front suspension and you are looking for a rack to fit it and have more travel. I also use a MII style on my '39 but I used an '89 T'Bird power rack. Mounts the same but lots cheaper than the MII. If you decide to look at one get the non-sport rack because it's has more turns lock to lock which will help with darting.

Have you verified that steering stops aren't interfering with the rack travel? Another idea, if your steering arms are bolt-ons, you could get shorter arms and achieve the same result.
