As with all of UniSteer's rack kits, the foundation of the Chevy II kits are rack & pinions matched to the stock suspension of these cars. This kit is designed to work with Small Block engines. The power rack and pinion is a matched GM rack manufactured to the correct dimensions. This kit comes mounted to a one piece bracket. The Bracket mounts behind the front engine mounts - slide out the original hardware and replace with the longer bolts supplied to mount up the kit.
The kits have been successfully installed on cars with stock manifolds, and Headman Headers. Otherwise, custom headers or modification to your headers will be needed. Rear sump oil pans and pickups must also be used so the rack will clear. The kits will work only with factory stock floor shift columns or aftermarket floor shift columns. Each kit includes a column bracket, firewall gasket, and column bearing, everything necessary to modify an original column. The power rack & pinion kit also includes a GM Type II pump kit with remote reservoir, single V-groove pulley, and braided stainless lines.
Steering arms are included in this kit as the racks do not have the same travel as the box and that big old pitman arm. The steering arms replace the bolt on ones on your spindles, but are shorter than the originals giving you back the turning radius.
Note: On some aftermarket engine blocks, the deck height may be raised by 0.4". This may affect your exhaust header location.
Note: Some aftermarket cylinder heads may have a raised exhaust floor anywhere from 0.25" - 0.4" which may affect header height.
