Product Description

You can sharpen your 1979-93 Mustang’s steering response with this Maximum Motorsports MMST-11 solid steering shaft assembly for power steering 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.

5 Stars   better then oe

Bought this to fix a issue with header clearance didn't help and was a bit worse then the OEM shaft. This one is indexable at the rack so if anything moves while installing you get to do it again so make sure you have secured the steering wheel.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

5 Stars   Worth every penny!

Our steering felt mushy and soft, the rag joint was very spongy and a tight fit with the headers. We installed this (did have to drop the steering column to get it installed) steering feels great now.

This is the answer. It fits better than the flaming river one, in fact, the FR one didn't fit at all, 2 inches too long. Well made and fits great on my '89 GT.

5 Stars   Excellent

I just installed this yesterday on one of my cars, the 1992 LX with the 2.3 engine. I have to say, I'm highly impressed. Was relatively simple to install. Besides fighting with the usual things like rust and corrosion, the install was very simple.

I had a ton of play in my steering wheel due to the rag joint being worn. I had chunks missing out of the rag joint. And call me crazy, but I didn't want to just replace the joint (which was significantly cheaper), I wanted to use this part. I'm glad I did, the steering feel and response is so much better.

Overall, I highly recommend this product. Easy install, great fit, excellent result.

5 Stars   Highest quality shaft available
By on 8/25/2014
I bought this to replace my oem steering shaft. I planned on replacing the rag joint coupler. But upon removal, the u joint towards the column had very slight play in it. That and the rag joint was the play I felt in the wheel. I did my research and this was the one to get. Maximum Motorsports has the best quality stuff and its all made in house! Getting it at Late Model reduced the cost too. You will notice just a little more vibration/noise from the steering wheel with this solid shaft. But the improved response is absolutely worth it.

4 Stars   Very well made part.
By on 10/24/2014
MM always makes good parts, but beware that 1. you will feel more vibrations, 2. you will have to loosen the power steering rack (2 simple bolts) in order to get it mounted, and 3. the middle shaft is actually larger than the stock one, so if your having a fitment issue already this will only make it worse. I have OBX-R long tube headers on my 93, and the MM shaft does rub on the middle of the shaft and the very top of the shaft, but it's so minor that either it will work itself out or I could just bend the pipe a little and I'll be fine. Besides that, as always Maximum Motorsports makes a superior product. I think it's better than the other ones out there.

5 Stars   Awesome shaft but will take you time
By on 3/24/2015
I got this to tighten up the steering on fox. I will be completely honest and say if you are looking to do this make sure you have plenty of time and do rack bushings right away because you wont want to go back under the car for a while. It is not that hard of an install but it is not that fun either. You will need lots of penetrating oil to help get splined end off of rack. Once I finally got it installed I was very happy I did it. Steering is great compared to stock.

5 Stars   great addition
By on 5/16/2015
You always wonder what you are going to get. This steering shaft by far is better than the OEM. Other reviews talked about road vibration on the wheel.At 80+ my 84 Fox never drove smoother. I have a nice tight wheel to go along with my new 306 from Ford racing.

If you have long tube headers you need this steering shaft. I have much more clearance and no more steering lock up on engine torque over.
