Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post

I installed a Uni-steer rack and pinion in my 32 ford. I will be running full length headers and with the old Vega box the steering shaft was tight to the headers. I would like to move it away and was looking for something that would mount to the frame. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I could find something that would work?? Thanks.

People sometimes use 3/4" Heim joints to run the shaft sections through and anchor things between u-joints, the Heims (aka rod ends, spherical bearings) get screwed into the frame (11/16ths hole and tap) or into welded-on brackets...looks a little weird but works well to keep things in line where you want them...
