Just wanting to know if anybody has of or knows of a rack&pinion for are 73 chevelle or malibus? was wanting to switch it over car is in the shop getting work done and get more after that so i was looking into this any help would be great.( Going to be a pro street car just in case you were wanting to know)
I assume you are looking for a bolt in kit for this? That I don't think is made yet for these cars. If you want to do it yourself, you can buy a universal rack and fabricate a setup. My 70 has a manual rack and pinion setup in it with a stock column and spindles.
yes that is what i would like to do and shave some weight.i will be doing a rack but i would like to get a power one if i can do it just need to get mesuerements and see what out there? what brand did you go with and hows it working for you?
I would have to check on the brand, I did mine about 8 years ago. Its a universal manual pinto style rack with the anti bump steer tie rod kit. The car has the upward travel semi limited to prevent bump steer, because it can happen when the tie rods and control arms move in different arcs. My car normally wheelstands about 12-18" limited by the wheelie bars. Its not the best for parking but the rack is unnoticeable when driving. I still have the stock column with the extension shafts and universal joint to connect to the rack. The front end is stock control arms and stock style shocks. So far the car drives effortlessly at almost 150 mph in a car weighing almost 3200 lbs.
