Q & A

What's in the Box

This rack & pinion conversion kit from Unisteer will give your Nova the ease of steering and road feel modern cars have. Each kit is engineered to bolt in without sacrificing steering geometry or safety.

The mounting bracket attaches to the bottom two control arm bolts on the rear of the crossmember. To install, simply remove the existing bolts and replace with the provided longer bolts, bolting the rack up into position. Then unbolt the stock steering arms and replace them with the new steering arms provided and attach the provided outer tie-rod ends, and that is it.

  • Matches stock steering geometry - little to no bump steer
  • Complete bolt on kit - no welding or chassis modification required
  • Works with both big block and small block engines
  • Kit comes standard in black powder coat
  • Works with factory steering pump (new lines required, see Notes)

Power racks use the 17mm DD spline.  Will work with both B/B and S/B engines. 

Fits

 

  • 1967-69 Camaro
  • 1968-74 Nova X-Body

Notes

  1. If using the stock steering column, you need to purchase the adaptor P# 910-80282. Unbolt rag joint at the end of stock column and use two provided bolts to bolt Column Flange Adaptor to the bottom of the column. This adaptor provides a spline size 48 count spline to which a U-joint can easily be attached.
  2. If using an aftermarket steering column, there is enough room to run a section of shaft and two u-joints, or if necessary, three u-joints with a support bearing, depending on the headers (parts not included).
  3. In regards to the pump, the factory power steering pump will work but will require new lines. If you do not have a pump, we recommend using a pump that was intended for use on a car with a rack and pinion, thus avoiding super sensitive steering. This kind of pump should be a low flow and low pressure pump.
  4. This kit will also work on 1968-74 Oldsmobile Omega, Buick Apollo, and Pontiac Ventura if they have a Chevy Small Block engine.
  5. Will NOT work with aftermarket dropped spindles due to steering arm position.

Book/Manual - How to Restore Your Camaro, 1967-69
SKU-28178178
                        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.
