UniSteer 8001090-01 Details

Unisteer's early Mustang Rack Kit greatly improves the steering and handling when compared to that old steering box. This is a center take-off style rack and pinion that utilizes an offset ball center bar which duplicates the stock center link; this means that the rack matches the exact geometry of the original front suspension. Effectively eliminating bump steer, and creating great handling.

The rack comes mounted to a one-piece mounting bracket which replaces the tubular cross member located directly behind the front suspension. Since the racks are center take-off style, Unisteer offsets the rack on the mounting bracket; moving the pinions closer to the driver-side frame which makes connection of the steering linkage to a column as easy as possible.

From a steering standpoint, Unisteer found that the early Mustangs split mid-1967 and there were slight differences, so make sure you order the correct kit! Additionally, later model Mustangs and Cougars may look the same but are NOT.

The kit will work on Small Block & Big Block cars, and have been successfully used with Stock Manifolds, and Hooker Super Comp Headers. Other Headers may work, but we can't guarantee an easy install. This kit requires the use of a mini starter. This kit may require some modifications on Mustangs with Dart Heads and other Aftermarket Heads requiring different headers.

Note: If you have a 351C motor you will need to use Headman headers.
