1970-77 Maverick Power Rack & Pinion Kit

Rack and Pinion - Power - 1970-77 Maverick - 289-351W - 8012260-01

SKU: 8012260-01

UniSteer used a rear steer center take-off style rack & pinion for this kit. Though similar to the Mustang & Cougar kits, this rack is made for the frame and suspension of the Mavericks specifically. The one piece bracket replaces the stock tube cross member between the two frame rails; stronger and stiffer than the original.

This kit works on Mavericks with small block motors. We have done installs using Hooker Super Comp Headers (their Part # 6901-HKR). Other headers may work, but might need modification. Use of mini starter is required with this kit.
