Improve Steering Response
Sharpen your 1979-93 Mustang’s steering response with Flaming River steering shaft for power racks. With your stock steering shaft, motion is lost due to the flexing of the rubber rag-joint. This flexing usually feels like play in the steering wheel (you can move the steering wheel without the car changing direction). The factory joints are replaced with race-quality needle-bearing U-joints, resulting in a dramatic improvement in steering response.
- Fits 1979-1993 Mustangs w/ Power Rack
This Flaming River power steering shaft looks great! I gave it 4 stars because in its description they do not say anything about fitting a rack & pinion on a tubular K member. The unit came quickly and packaged well, however I had to cut the shaft down to fit a QA1 K member in an 89 Mustang GT with a power rack. I also purchased the Flaming River product because the company is based in Cleveland Ohio which is where I live. I prefer to buy USA made items especially if made locally.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Steering shaft was superbly manufactured and exceeded my expectations. This part was a replacement for the rag joint on my 88 Mustang LX convertible with the 2.3 I4 engine.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service.
