63-87 rack and pinion

Next week (may 23-27) we will be posting up install picts of our new rack and pinion kit as it goes in. StreetTrucks will also be covering the install for an upcoming article. We are having the owner of the truck do the install himself, with an "out of the box" kit. These kits will go onsale starting June 1. Stay tuned for updates. Thanks.

Re: 63-87 rack and pinion

Awesome, I have also been waiting for some more info on your rear shock mounts and the long track bar you are showing on the JT project. I currently have adjustable shocks so I would be interested in a package deal without the shocks so I can use my QA1 shocks.
Thanks
David

Re: 63-87 rack and pinion

Sounds good Rob,

I am to far along to use you kit but it is nice to see all the testing and R & D that is going into the new Rack & pinion kit before it is released.

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