1969 steering box options and rag joint
Digging in further into my suspension upgrades I came across a dead end
I was installing my headers the other day (sbc 327) and found the steering box to be completely in my way. Tried a set of hedman long tubes, no dice. A set of Dougs tri-y's, no dice. Ordering a set of Patriots Summit assures me will fit. Now, I came across to thinking... is there a smaller power steering box that will work? Or a rack and pinion conversion would be the cats *** but I can't find anything to work. Suggestions on upgrading?
Also I'd like to eliminate the bulky sloppy rag joint with an eliminator kit or u-joint or similar. What's out there for me? I got an eliminator kit for my 96 z28 years ago but that's a whole different breed of stupid. Mind you I have the stock column and would like to keep it.
