I just found out that if you are wanting to quicken the steering of your car without spending a lot of dough, you can use the steering box of an 82 and up Camaro. This will only work for the chevy boys though.
The box is a 2:1 ratio, and is just like adding a Howe Quick Steer.
JUst thought I would pass it along !

Formula firebirds are the same as iroc's. They will work on your metric.

I've got a question about the 2:1 box. Does this box turn 2 tmes to 1 on the input and output shafts or does it give a 2;1 steering ratio like the add on quicksteer units? I seem to remember seeing 12:1 boxes that were better than the 16:1 boxes commonly available. Clear me up on this one. Thanks. SLEEPY

Come on Sleepy, don't check out in public,he he. The box he is referring to is the 12-1 box. For those of us that can't run a quick steer unit it really helps out.

Hey thanks redneck bubba. Speedway Motors has a remanufactured box in their catalog, $139.95. They say it is 3 turns lock to lock. I think this is going to be the 12:1 box but verify that before you buy. SLEEPY
