At last ! Feel safe driving your bus. Junk that 100 year old technology and say good by to boat steering. We offer the most precise steering you can imagine.
Our rack and pinion conversion kit is designed to replace your old worn out steering box and give your bus the feel of a modern car. Several years of development have gone into this kit to make it the safest and best designed conversion in the world.
After testing many production car racks and having several “specials” manufactured for us, we decided the only way to get a perfect product was to design our own rack to fit within the confines of the vehicles chassis without any modifications. It had to be manufactured to the highest quality for safety and performance, so we asked the countries top specialist rack manufacturer who’s clients include McClaren, Caterham as well as many of the Europes top motor sport teams. The result is a rack that will give you incredibly responsive steering with minimal slack. With a carefully selected ratio, you will discover the slightest movement of the steering wheel will give immediate response at the wheels.
Attach this rack to the new column and drive couplings produced by one of Europe's most respected Steering Component manufacturer’s with 30 years experience, and you have a system like no other. Our brand new steering column exceeds the original factory item in build quality. Its outer case is manufactured from stainless steel and is available polished for show or powder coated for an original look. Running on needle roller bearings in an acetyl housing, you can be sure the new internal steering shaft runs as smooth as silk. You will be pleased to know your original Bus steering wheel will bolt straight on to the new column as we have reproduced the factory taper and woodruff key fitment. *
If your bus is lowered, you’ll appreciate the added bonus that this system is positioned higher in your chassis than your old box giving you over 50mm greater ground clearance.
The kit is a bolt in application requiring only a small amount of trimming to the chassis for clearance and five 8mm diameter holes drilled. No welding is required and installation should only take approximately four hours. We include photographic step by step fitting instructions. Although not difficult, we do advise that installation is only carried out by an experienced automotive engineer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNB-svrQQOc
