We used a modified traditional style GM rack and pinion for the Tri-5s. The rack is bolted to a one piece bracket which mounts exactly where the old steering box and idler arm were mounted to the frame. The rack is machined so it is narrower, matching the stock suspension of these cars.

Drop the weight of that old steering box, power or manual, this will save you as much as 70lbs. This kit is designed for use on cars with small block motors with headers; Sanderson and Flow Teck headers have been successfully used. However, they do not work with a mechanical clutch, you will need to switch to a hydraulic clutch to install these headers. Other headers may work as well, but may require modification or a shaft kit with three u-joints. Installs on Big Block Motors have been done, but are more difficult as it will require three u-joints, a support bearing, and probably modification to the headers. This rack kit will also work with Mike McGuagthy's drop spindles with slight modification to the inner ends.

Note:  Not for Street Use, Racing Only!

The rack does have less travel than the old pitman arm, so the arms are necessary to maintain comparable turning radius. We have shaft kits for small block motor cars, which consist of two joints, DD shafting, and a coupler for aftermarket columns or a bearing to reuse the Factory Column. Unisteer is also pleased to offer Ididit Columns as well as Sanderson and Flow Tech Headers.

Note: This unit is designed for Floor Shift vehicles. If you would like to use a column shift, you will need to upgrade the column to an ididit column.
