close ratio steering conversion kits


Recommended Posts

Finally the kits to convert regular steering boxes to close ratio have arrived.  We should have them up on our website very soon.  We have both left hand drive and right hand drive kits.  We also have some kits to repair original left hand CR boxes.  We will be converting some boxes here to check out the process and offer them for sale as well.

ok, so lets assume one person has a sloppy regular ratio steering box (sloppy = driving straight you can turn the wheel left & right a few inches but no changes in direction of car).

 

If this same person was to buy this kit, is it safe to assume this kit would replace the sloppy-ness and get the feeling back to "normal"/within spec? 

 

Thanks!!

Yes, exactly! But it would now be quick ratio.

I would assume that anyone researching the possibility of rebuilding their box would have first researched how to take the slop out.

 

 

Pretty cool to see IE fund these into fruition.  People have talked about CR steering boxes in hushed voices for decades.

Does anyone know of a place that can do all the work to completely rebuild the box? Like size the bronze shaft bearings, replace the inner race, and replace the roller gear shaft? At the moment we don't have enough man power to take on this type of work.

Lol... Never assume anything!

 

It's "QR", not "CR".

Possibly straight line steering? https://www.straightlinesteering.com/ looks like they have a socal location too...

Absolutely tried all options/settings before "living with it."

so many folks don't realize there is an adjustment screw on top of the box to take the slop out of the steering.....up until the box is so worn there is not adjustment left.

 

That's a pretty big assumption.  Most of the enthusiasts whom I've dealt with have figured that part out and then just slammed dunked the adjustment screw to oblivion.  

 

To each their own.

and i have shown this adjustment to many long time 02 owners who had no idea it was adjustable....

 

and have bought many 02's with sloppy steering and unadjusted steering boxes.

 

to each their own.
