I have one-gettigte tie rod ends in far enough was a pain-they got REAL tight-Flaming River was no help. Otherwise it was OK. It's very hard to steer at times and keep in mind-I have skinnies up front. I would't attempt to try to park it with stock tires up front...

you would be suprised how much eiseir it is to turn a painr of 225's than sknnies..rember the skinnies have way more PSI on the road than a more spread out 225..anything bigger than a 225 and your fighting against turning the rubber..think about it

btw this was in my 87 with a 83 manuel rack witch is even harder to turn than the flaming river rack

How do you like it?

I'm giving some thought to getting the full kit, which includes the rack and solid steering shaft.

If it was a daily driven street car or a car you take to autocross with I wouldn't reccomend it. I guess the only advantage would be for drag racing cause you shave a couple pounds.

I keep hearing conflicting opinions on how hard it is to turn. I would think that a properly designed manual rack wouldn't be that bad. This is a daily driver, and my primary goal is to introduce some feedback into the steering. The power system along with the rag joint makes for zero feel. If I can turn the wheel with one hand while stopped, that'll be good enough for me. I could just get a new shaft, but that's half the price of the entire rack...

Our cars are nose heavy, thus the heavy steering. You can replace the rag joint with a replacement solid universal fitting and still keep the stock steeing shaft for a fraction of the price. Go onto corner-carvers.com and do a search as i have seen it posted there. GL
