This kit is BIGGER, BADDER, & BETTER than our earlier successful model. This kit features a 30% stronger motor that will reduce effort in vehicles steering wheels that weigh up to 4500lbs. The new computer modules are now in a sealed weather resistant box and can withstand very harsh conditions. This is a universal kit that includes the basic kit components as pictured.
In addition to this kit, you will need an assortment of u-joints, couplers, and a steering shaft that can be purchased together on this site. Both the input and output spline on the electric motor are unique. There are options you can choose from above.
Note: All U-Joints and couplers in the drop down menus fit the 17mm x 36 spline of the Electra-Steer Motor.
1965-66 Mustang Power Rack & Pinion for Small Block
Our early Mustang Rack Kit greatly improves the steering and handling when compared to that old steering box. This is a center take-off style rack and pinion that utilizes an offset ball center bar which duplicates the stock center link; this means that the rack matches the exact geometry of the original front suspension. Effectively eliminating bump steer, and creating great handling.
The rack comes mounted to a one piece mounting bracket which replaces the tubular cross member located directly behind the front suspension. Since the racks are center take-off style, we off set the rack on the mounting bracket; moving the pinions closer to the driver-side frame which makes connection of the steering linkage to a column as easy as possible.
From a steering standpoint, we found that the early Mustangs split mid 1967 and there were slight differences, so make sure you order the correct kit! Additionally, later model Mustangs and Cougars may look the same, but are NOT - check out our Cougar Rack & Pinion Kits.
The kit will work on Small Block cars, and have been successfully used with Stock Manifolds, and Hooker Super Comp Headers. Tri-Y Headers have worked with 289, and 302 engines. Other Headers may work, but we can't guarantee an easy install. This kit requires the use of a mini starter. This kit may require some modifications on Mustangs with Dart Heads and other Aftermarket Heads requiring different headers.
Note: Granada Spindles have been used on these cars. Please indicate this to us with the drop down menu above, so we can swap the outer ends you will need.

1928-32 Ford Cross Steer® Retro-Fit Kit, Black Bracket
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 suspension. Since the Cross Steer pivots only off the one side, it matches up perfectly with the stock suspension 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!
