This kit goes in place of the original steering linkage and with increased space requirement the use of a larger capacity pan could easily cause clearance issues. You may want to contact Ford Racing for pan changes as compared to stock and also possibly Unisteer for dimensions in the area of the pan.

I installed your Blueprint 302 with your long tube headers in my '68 Mustang. It has a C4 auto...there will be no interference with those headers, correct?

This Unisteer rack and pinion for your Mustang works on many applications but in the case of headers you may have to use a third U-joint and support heim to bring the column shaft linkage to the outside to clear the header tubes.

This will fit with original power or manual steering and includes everything needed to convert to rack and pinion as long as you use the original column. It includes the U-joints for the rack and the column shaft.

The outer tie rods will be for the 68-70 Mustang and the taper will still be the same 7 degree. The tie rod ends are female to go onto the male threaded ends of the tie rods coming out of the rack. In either case the taper will be correct for the Ford application.

Two bolt mounts with specifications as follows: CONTAINS A 9/16-26 SPLINE SHAFT; 4.5 ROTATIONS LOCK TO LOCK; OVERALL WIDTH FROM TIP TO TIP OF TIE ROD THREADS = 39"; CENTER TO CENTER OF MOUNTING LOCATIONS IS 19 3/8".

I am sorry, I don't have an absolute answer for you as to the fit of the Rack & Pinion you are asking about in you Mustang and Engine combination. This unit will work with many different combinations of engines with Hooker Super Comp Headers. In viewing the pictures of the different headers, the 351C is somewhat different than the 289/302 sets. If your headers leave enough room in the area that the Rack & Pinion will be located, it is very likely that it will fit just fine.
