What do you get?

What options are available?
Power or manual, small-block or big-block, power steering pump kit, upgrade to steel braided power steering hoses, aftermarket tilt column, billet adjuster tie-rod assemblies, and even righthand drive for those of you who drive on the wrong side of the road.

Why should I buy it?
Thanks to parent company, Chris Alston Chassisworks, TCP has a great deal of research and development at their disposal and have used that to create a bolt-in rack that not only functions like factory, but reportedly has the best header clearance of any rack offered for Mustangs. Also, the rack itself is so strong that when installed, it actually becomes a load-bearing member of the chassis and works to stiffen it.

Are any modifications required?
1965-'67 Mustangs will need to trim the factory outer steering column tube to a shorter length; 1960-'65 Falcons need to drill two holes in each framerail in addition to trimming the steering column tube to a shorter length; 1967-'70 Mustangs are 100 percent bolt-on.

How do I buy it?
Direct from TCP's website or over the phone, or through any authorized TCP distributor

How much does it cost?
Pricing starts at $1,398 for a complete manual rack-and-pinion conversion kit; power racks are priced at $2,098, plus power steering pump kit.

What models are covered?
'67-69 Camaro, '67-69 Firebird
'55-57 Chevy, '68-72 Chevelle
'68-74 Nova, '53-82 Corvette
'641/2-70 Mustang

What do you get?
Parts included with the Steeroids kit are rack-and-pinion, adapter brackets, adjustable tie-rod ends, U-joint assembly, power steering hoses, and Grade-8 fasteners.

What options are available?
Kits are standard packages, but you will need to decide whether to purchase the kit to modify the stock column, or replace it with a bolt-in column.

Why should I buy it?
Steeroids kits have a very low turn ratio, typically under three turns lock-to-lock, whereas stock systems can have up to five turns. That means less struggling with the steering wheel when making maneuvers quickly, such as in an autocross, or more importantly when making evasive maneuvers on the street. Since the kit uses an aluminum housing and aluminum tie-rod links to replace the factory steel parts, a Steeroids kit typically reduces weight by 20-25 percent. Also, rather than retaining the factory non-adjustable tie-rod ends, Steeroids kits use adjustable tie rods to help eliminate bumpsteer and allow additional steering tuning.

Are any modifications required?
When purchased with a steering column, no modifications are required whatsoever. Those retaining the factory column will need to modify the end. The kits were designed for V-8 auto trans cars, and may interfere with the stock four-speed linkage; cars with manual cable or hydraulic clutch conversion won't have problems. If you are using different spindles than stock (like Granada spindles), let Steeroids know, and they will supply the correct outer tie-rod ends. Also, columns are standard with GM steering wheel splines; Ford-splined columns are an additional $135.
