Will this work with a manual steering car? I have a 1957 chevy wagon that had power steering that I'm taking out and doing manual steering. Will this work for manual steering or is the geometry wrong because it's for power steering? Thank you

The idler arm and pitman arm need to create the proper geometry. If you have the lazy S shape V8 pitman arm for manual it will not work in conjunction with idler arm for power steering. Now, if you have the 6 cylinder pitman arm it is referenced as working with the power steering idler arm.
