This is a rear steer center take-off style rack & pinion with a ball center bar that exactly matches the center link of the stock suspension for the '55-'56 Fords. The rack & pinion comes mounted to a one piece mounting bracket that bolts up to the frame using the same holes that help the steering box and idler arm.
This kit has been successfully installed in cars with both the 272 and 292 motors with stock manifolds. Other headers may work but might require modification or another u-joint in the column linkage.
Note: If you have a 312 or 352 motor our kit may work with modification & different pump bracket which we can supply.
Note: This kit will not work with the factory column shifter, but it will work with an aftermarket column shifter.
