Designed to replace the common Vega steering box, this rack and pinion assembly has a long passenger-side tie rod that hooks up to the right spindle like a Vega-style drag link. The rack unit is mounted on a sturdy bracket that bolts to your existing Vega box mount. The rack mounts much lower and farther forward than a box to provide more clearance, and those who have installed the system report quicker steering response and easier effort than a steering box.
The racks have 9/16" 26-spline shafts and the extension shafts are 5/8" 36-spline, just like a Vega box.
Specify 11/16" or 5/8" tie rod thread. The 5/8" is used with a LH heim joint, 11/16" is used with a LH tie rod end. Outer tie rod and jam nut not included.
If you are using heim ends, you may wish to order heim 175-0316 and jam nut 910-01056. If using tie rod ends, you may wish to order tie rod end 910-02919 and jam nut 910-01159.
Cross Steering Tech Tip (Link)
This cross steer rack set up is for converting an existing hot rod with Vega steering to a cross steer rack and pinion. It is NOT a direct replacement on an original 1974 Vega. It bolts on in the same location as a Vega box on the hot rod applications and drops the rack lower so the drag link is more inline with the tie rod. It requires an extension from the input shaft to the existing column or u-joint since it is lower than the Vega box. It needs to be ordered for 5/8” heims or Ford Tie rod end for attachment to the steering arm on the passenger side of your hot rod.
This rack is designed to fit the frame widths on the 1928-32 Ford cars and vehicle weight in the 2500 pound range and is designed to work well with a spring over 4" drop axle.
