1955-57 Ford Thunderbird Rack and Pinion Kit (302 Motors)

Rack and Pinion - Power - 1955-57 Thunderbird - 289-351W - 8012570

SKU: 8012570

This kit is based on a rear steer center take-off style rack & pinion, as are the majority of our kits, but this one is specific to these Thunderbirds. The rack & pinion is mounted to a one piece mounting bracket which bolts to the frame using the same holes for the steering box and the idler arm on the passenger side.

The UniSteer kit was designed to go on a Thunderbird with stock suspension and 289, 302 motors. Install was done on a vehicle with stock exhaust manifolds. Headers may work, but might need modification.

Let your sales person know, or make the appropriate selection in the menu above to accommodate the right small block motor or an aftermarket column.
