"Just the right fit"

I used the extended outer tie rod ends on my custom 2F1R three wheel trike. The threads where a bit tight on one of the tie rod ends but after a few turns the fit was perfect. Very good product.
Pros:
  • Extra length
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you are using a Speedway or a Heidts cross member designed for your 55 Ford truck the cross member is wider than an OEM Mustang II requiring the use of the inner tie rod extensions. The wider cross member moves the control arms out and to keep the rack pivots in line with the control arm pivots the extensions are required. If using longer outer tie rods and leaving the rack original two different arcs are created during suspension travel creating bump steer, erratic tire wear, and excessive tire scrub during the turning radius. If an OEM cross member is used then neither the inner extensions or longer tie rods should be required unless the control arm length was modified

Mustang II and T-Bird Rack and Pinion Inner Tie Rod Extensions
(Part #91034345)
                        

Inner tie rod extensions for Mustang II/Thunderbird-style steering racks. Includes boots and bands.  These inner tie rod extensions fit between the inner shaft of the rack and the pivot where the tie rod attaches. It moves the pivot out to align with the pivot on the lower control arm or the imaginary line between the upper pivot and the lower control arm pivot. In doing so it leaves the tie rod in plane with the lower control arm and preserves correct steering geometry.

The manual version does NOT have the holes for roll pins and Loctite is recommended. The power version is similar to the OEM and has 3 holes and include drift or roll pins for retention.

Manual version (MAN) fits

  • Flaming River manual racks
  • Maval manual racks

Power version (POW) fits

  • Mustang II power racks
  • 1982-88 Thunderbird power racks
