The Cross Steer is essentially a small half rack and pinion that bolts into place exactly where the Vega style steering box would bolt on. The system still uses a draglink between both wheels. The Cross Steer was specifically designed for solid axle cars and trucks of this era with a mono leaf spring suspention. Since the Cross Steer pivots only off the one side, it matches up perfectly with the stock suspention of the solid axle Fords. Sorry, it will not work on Chevys which had dual leaf springs.

Note: You must have split wishbones (at least 12 inches) or hairpins for the Cross Steer to properly work.

The gear comes mounted to an angled bracket that has the same three hole pattern for mounting the Vega box. This small rack & pinion is made of all automotive grade components and can handle a vehicle up to 3500 lbs!

If you are building a new vehicle, the regular Cross Steer is the best option and you can run your steering linkage down to the gear. We can even send you a Cross Steer with a plain steel bracket that you could weld to your frame and paint to match. If you still have a Vega Box, check out our retrofit that has a shaft kit. This shaft kit consists of a coupler and a shaft with a splined end which is the same size as the Vega spline so you can reuse your existing steering linkage. The switch over can be done in only an hour or two!
