Upgrade Your Original Mustang II IFS with Power Rack-and-Pinion Steering. There is little argument that the Mustang II independent front suspension (IFS) is one of, if not THE most widely used suspension designs for street rods, kit cars, and even updated classic muscle car suspensions.
From weld-in frame stubs to full frame conversions, the Mustang II IFS offers a whole lot for your performance dollar. In one upgrade you give your project disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, better suspension geometry, and the ability to modify and update with all manner of aftermarket parts including drop spindles, coilover shocks, and more. Many Mustang II setups begin as budget systems with standard stamped steel control arms, small disc brakes, and manual steering.Adding power steering provides better low-speed control, especially with larger tires, and allows a smaller diameter steering wheel to be fitted, often providing much sought-after interior room in the small cabins of street rods. Superior Build Quality with Direct Fit Ease. Have you tried to source an original or remanufactured'74-'78 Mustang II power steering rack lately? They are getting harder to find and costs keep going up. However, a rodding trick that has grown in popularity is to upgrade to the Fox chassis Thunderbird rack-and-pinion due to its lower cost and ease of conversion. For most aftermarket Mustang II crossmembers it is a direct bolt-on swap thanks to the slotted mounting hole found on these newer crossmember designs. For those with older Mustang II crossmembers with a fixed 16-inch center-to-center mounting point distance we have put together this simple kit to help facilitate installing the newer T-Bird power rack to your crossmember.
Installation is easy for the T-Bird rack by simply using the offset rack bushings and mounting hardware we have provided in this kit to change the center-to-center mounting bolt location to the wider 16-inch dimension used on the original Mustang II. Push out the included bushings (if installed) and install the offset bushings with the mounting holes outboard (away) from each other.
This is your best solution when using the Ford CII pump in a Ford-powered application as well. Use bolt kit with rack spacers if extra crossmember clearance is needed converting from a manual rack. Overall width of steering rack with inner tie rods is 45-1/8-inches. Compatible with standard Mustang II outer tie-rod ends, such as.Bump steer kit can be used in lieu of outer tie rods if desired. If rack extensions are necessary for your installation this power rack requires 25mm-1.25 thread extensions. The power steering rack has 5/8-inch and 9/16-inch O-ring style ports which will not work with inverted flare fitting-equipped power steering lines. OEM replacement for 1982 to 1993 Ford Mustang, 1982 to 1988 Ford Thunderbird, and 1984 to 1988 Mercury Cougar but will require aftermarket AN pressure and return line kit to connect to your factory pump. Outer Tie Rod Ends Included.
Input shaft was longer that mustang 2. Yes, I recommend this product. Unit is offset to the right side. By Dave on January 17, 2021.I threaded on my rod ends so they were evenly engaged. After I assembled everything and was testing it out, I realized the rack was off center and would not turn fully to left. It would be better if this was stated up front since this is supposed to be a direct replacement for a mustang 2 rack. I highly recommend this rack. By Larry on January 02, 2021. The rack is getting installed on a'41 Chevy coupe. With the offset bushings, it is an easy install. Very nice rack & pinion at a great price. By bill on December 15, 2020.
The unit stated that it was replace for a Mustang II, with the use of offset bushing. There is another difference that was not noted. The steering shaft is about an 1 inch longer T-Bird rack. For may application on my 48 Chevy was a problem as the steering shaft passed thru the left engine mount bracket.
I had to lift the engine (a SBC) modify the mount bracket abd shorten the steering shaft. But after the modes it works great. Not enough information about product. By Dave on December 08, 2020. I was replacing an original Mustang 2 rack in a 1936 Ford.
