Q & A

What's in the Box

This rack & pinion conversion kit will finally give your classic 1967-69 Camaro or Firebird the ease of steering and road feel modern cars have. Each kit is engineered to bolt in without sacrificing steering geometry or safety. This rack is specifically designed and built for the Camaro so that it matches the factory steering geometry. The result is very little bump steer!

The rack comes mounted on the brackets which makes installation a breeze. The unit mounts to the rear of the cross member, bolting to the lower stock control arm bolts. The outer tie rod ends are bolted to the stock steering arms. No fabrication required!

Small, compact, offers maximum ground clearance, and can drop up to 65 lbs. off the stock front end.

  • Manual Rack & Pinion
  • Mounting Bracket

  2. Will NOT work with aftermarket dropped spindles due to steering arm position.
  3. Will NOT work with Firebird with Pontiac motor, only Firebird with small or big block Chevy.

  • Kit comes standard in black powder coat
  • Works with factory steering pump (new lines required, see Notes)

Book/Manual - How to Restore Your Camaro, 1967-69
                        About 700,000 Camaros were built from 1967 to  1969. The first-generation Camaro has won a die-hard following and has  become an iconic performance car. Camaros in excellent condition command  very high prices, so many owners are compelled to perform a  professional-grade original restoration. Since these cars are about 40  years old, many cars need second or third restorations, and as time goes  by, these cars will continue to appreciate and require restoration.  That's where How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 comes in. While some  owners can afford to pay shops to perform a 100-point restoration for  show car competition, many owners want to perform a faithful, detailed  restoration themselves, so the car maintains its collector value and use  it as a fun weekend driver. This book will serve those owners.

A lead title in our Restoration Series, How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 will provide in-depth, hands-on information and photography for restoring these popular and historically significant cars. It covers all aspects of restoration, including engines and drivelines, bodywork, interior and trim, suspension, brakes, chassis, and steering for the first-generation Camaros. Organization and planning will be covered, so restorers can stay on task. Disassembly, inspection, and sourcing the best parts will also be covered. This volume will deliver a concise and revealing overview of each subject area and shows the most critical aspects of the restoration process with sequential step-by-step photos and detailed captions. The most efficient techniques and best products for returning each component to like-new condition will be covered. With this information, owners will be able to determine what's involved in each step of the restoration and decide whether to perform the work themselves or outsource it to a professional shop. Color step-by-step how-to information on Camaro restoration has never been offered in a package like this before. Finally, Camaro owners have the book they need.
