1970-1974 Firebird & Trans-Am Power Rack and Pinion Kits-8011160-01

SKU: 843613129429

Give your Trans-Am a steering upgrade! You may not be able to really see when its sitting on the lot, but you’ll feel it on the road! Try our bolt in Power Rack & Pinion kit for your Firebird or Trans-Am and completely improve your steering and handling.

For this Pontiac we used a Front Steer, center take off style rack and pinion made to match the original center-link of these cars. The rack and pinion match the stock front suspension – great handling and responsiveness – no bump steer! The rack comes mounted to a one-piece bracket which bolts up to the same factory holes on the frame that held the steering box and idler arm.

Unisteer did its first install on a 455 and we used Dynomax Headers (their Part #86104.) Other headers may work but may need modification. Everything is included in the kit: a pump with clip on reservoir is matched to the rack and pinion. Single V-Groove pulley is standard, Serpentine is available. The shaft kit includes 3 U-Joints, shafts, a support bearing, and bracket to connect the factory column with the rack.
