Q & A
What's in the Box
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
This tie rod extention will NOT fit our 91034340-MAN rack. It will fit Flaming River and Maval racks.
