What's in the Box

Info

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
  • 14mm-1.50 thread

Power version (POW) fits

  • Mustang II power racks
  • 1982-88 Thunderbird power racks
  • 25mm-1.25

Application

910-34345-MAN:

This tie rod extention will NOT fit our 91034340-MAN rack. It will fit other racks with 14MM-1.50 threads at the inboard ends (Flaming River and Maval racks)

To use our 91034340-MAN rack, please order 91034346.

Works perfect

August 27, 2011
Ordered the entire Mustang II kit for Ford F1, but the extension that is needed wasn't part of the kit. For the truck one must have the extension. I only found out when I was ready to install and I ran out of unopened boxes. Speedway was good though and paid for the freight.
Pros:
  • Easy To Install
  • Fits perfect
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great Part

July 10, 2011
This is the part you need if you are installing a T-Bird rack on a street rod after market crossmember. (I used an A1 Cardone Part # 22-203F 1 pc. bushing) I installed this on a TCI crossmember on the left side only. It extends the pivot point 2 inches and maintains the correct geometry. Since you only need one you'll have one for your next project or go in with a friend and split the set up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will this inner tie rod end fit a Mustang II power rack and pinion? I have a 1948 F1 with a very early 1990 Fatman Fabrication Mustang II front end. I have replaced my manual 1976 Mustang II MANUAL rack and pinion, that fit perfectly, with a 1976 Mustang II POWER rack and pinion. I have the tie rod ends almost adjusted all the way out on the inner tie rods. The driver side tie rod is a perfect fit . I can rotate the driver side tire from lock to lock with the tie rod connected. But the passenger side tie rod end needs a 3.88 inches extension to make the inner tie rod end connect to the outer tie rod end. Do I need a LONG Tie Rod End and this Inner tie rod end to make it fit? The thread size listed is 14mm x 1.50....!!!! Does my 1976 Mustang II have those threads? I need some reassurance from Speedway application personnel prior to making an order. Help Please

Normally on a 48 inner tie rod extensions are needed. This increases the overall width of 45.12 nearly 4 inches which appears to be what you need. The only issue is that Ford did use more than one thread on the inner tie rod ends and we cannot guarantee the thread on your rack for match up to our part number 91034345-POW. The extensions for the power rack are 15/16” x 20. When looked up online you need to specify manual which has the 14mm x 1.5 thread or the power with thread size referenced. You will need to verify the thread size you have and possibly the supplier has that information.

Is there any provision to keep this extension from unscrewing off the rack shaft? I was hoping for a lock nut, pin or other safety locking devise.

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 standard outer tie rod ends as comes with the complete IFS kit will work properly and you will NOT have to use the longer outer tie rod ends. Standard track width on a Mustang II is 56.5 and with the wider cross member of the 53-56 ford the track width increases to 60.5. 11" brakes increase the track width an additional 1" for the Ford pattern and 2" for the Chevy pattern.

I'm curious as to why these can't be used on one side only? I have a 48 pontiac with a Fatman fab frame stub and a thunderbird power steering rack. My problem is I can turn really sharp to the left but not very far to the right. I've adjusted and readjusted it but I need more length on the passenger side.

This will not increase your turning radius at all, it will only extend the outer tie rod out from the rack to increase the traack width.

The extension kit PT # 91034345 POW has the extensions and bellows that you are asking for. The thread pitch in this kit is 15/16"-20. We also have a kit Pt# 91034345 MAN in which the threads on the extenders are 14mm-1.50. Be sure to verify which kit you need. If you only need an extension on one side then you will have an extra since these kits are sold as a pair. Sorry we are not able to split them up.
