This product is outstanding!

Wizard Fabrications stands behind their product. I had purchased a Steer Clear back in 2007. Then the product was designed with a small amount of backlash. Now they are not. The company updated mine for free of charge. Now it works perfectly.
Pros:
  • The steer Clear WORKS
  • Versatile
  • Durable
  • Easy To Use
  • Lightweight
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sorry there are not any installation instructions with this unit. It will need to be mounted to the vehicle with the four bolt holes in the case of the unit and a steering shaft connected from the bottom spline to the steering box as well as one from the top spline to the steering column.
