STEERING LINKAGE HOOK-UP KITS & COLUMNS
We offer steering linkage kits for all of our IFS kits and direct replacement chassis. Whether you go with a new column or modify the bottom of the old column, you’ll need a steering linkage kit to mate to the new rack-and-pinion steering on all of our IFS kits or chassis. Like the linkage kit (shown in the center), when three U-joints are used, a support bearing is necessary. This helps to route the new linkage past headers or stock exhaust.
We have plain steel, chrome steel, brushed aluminum, polished aluminum, plain stainless, & polished stainless steel columns.
We can also modify the bottom of your stock column to accept the linkage kit, if a new column is not in your budget! We’ll need to mill two flat sides on the bottom of your old steering shaft, add a shoulder bushing (to keep the shaft centered in the column), add a locking ring, and a double-D U-joint to connect to the new linkage kit!
This is how your new steering linkage kit hooks up to the bottom of your stock column. Either your old stock column modified, new ididit or Flaming River column will need a double "D" U-joint to mate with the standard linkage. Stock column linkage kit shown installed (left).
