Re: Bolt in steering rack

next week we are going to do an "out of the box" install on a stock-ish 66. StreetTrucks is coming out to cover the install, and we are having a the owner of the truck install the kit himself. If all goes as planned we are ready to roll the kits out June 1. This way we will know if anything needs to be tweeked, we will post up dailey during the install, and have the owner comment on the install and the feel - before/after. The only thing we are waiting for is the cnc formed pressure tubes from classic tube. they should be here next week, we can bend and flare a few, but I'm sure we won't be able to meet the demand that way. Look for picts starting monday.

Re: Bolt in steering rack

Cool!!! That is the way a Kit should be done having the owner install himself working out the bugs! Props the No Limit!

6 cyl is OK, just need to mount a pump. Hoses will be an option, we are trying to source factory parts to make replacement easier.

Re: Bolt in steering rack

put me on your list Rob. I've been wanting a complete new custom IFS...but will have to settle for my dropped spindles/1" springs/bump stops/tubular upper control arms, and big sway bar. The slow OEM steering has got to go and I'd rather do a r&p over a new steering box. My LS3 style motor already has the right ps pump.

Re: Bolt in steering rack

The two lower 'fingers' set the height of the brackets. The first locating hole is dead center on the crossmember.
