1958-64 Impala/Bel Air Small Block Short Water Rack and Pinion Kit

1958-64 Impala/Bel Air Small Block Short Water Rack and Pinion Kit - 8011040-01

 
SKU: 8011040-01

This is a front steer center take off style rack & pinion that matches the stock front end and suspension. The rack is mounted to a one piece mounting bracket that bolts into the same factory holes for the steering box and idler arm. The kit does clear the Z Bar and 4 speed linkage, but does not work with the factory 348 & 409 Engines. If your vehicle had factory power steering, you will need to use our stabilizer bar mounts which are included in place of the factory mounts.

Our kit probably will not work with aftermarket suspension that change the original suspension, but give us a call!

This kit works on most small block engine applications with short water pumps. Installs have been done successfully using Hooker Long Tube Headers. The kits are complete with a shaft kit which includes two u-joints and shafting as well as a pump kit with a pump matched to the gear, clip on reservoir, and Single V-Groove Pulley. Serpentine Pulleys are also available. Pump kits for Long Water Pumps are also available.

Note: Kit can be adapted to fit your needs by selecting the pulley option above.
