Power Steering Adapter Plates
This is the power steering adapter plate that I have been making since 1993. It is of a little different design than the others on the market. With mine you don't need to drill out any threaded holes on the steering box. All four of the steering box bolts go thru the frame. Also there is no inner plate to deal with. I don't feel it is necessary for a 2 wheel drive truck. I've had this same plate on my '66 Suburban since 1993 and put just over 120,000 miles on it with no issues. When I've installed these, I stitch weld the plate to the frame for a little added strength. This isn't absolutely necessary though, since there are four bolts securing it to the frame. The price for this bracket is $50.00 plus $10.00 for insured shipping in the USA. Included is the bracket as shown and four grade 8 bolts and lock washers.
For an additional part to go with this adapter plate, see page 6, posts #126 and #137
These adapter plates can also be used on the K series frames that didn't come from the factory with power steering.
