Re: Early falcon power steering options

Hi 64
I too am weighing up the options regarding xm steering. I know the RRS kit seems quite expensive, but having seen one in the flesh, & talked to the RRS engineer/designer, must say I'm very impressed & will probably use their set-up when the time comes for me to pull the finger out.
Cheers
Warren

Hmmm. incomplete conversion...
If you go and search Stangnet for Rack and pinion power steering, you'll find that Conventional racks cannot be effectively adapted to X-series falcons. They're simply too wide across the ends, limiting the turning circle and imparting serious bumpsteer issues.... The Steeroids, randalls rack and Total Control Products racks use a central pickup point, as does the RRS rack.
The only factory fitment RHD rack i've ever seen like that is in a Lancia Beta...
Anyone got a piccy of the CRS kit? I'd be interested to know what rack they use...
