I run a 72 galaxy with rear steer. Does anyone out there run a later model ford with front steer? If so, what is the number of turns lock to lock? This galaxy has 4 turns. I'd like to see if front steer gear box can be adapted if turn ratio is significantly less. Quickeners against the rules.

The problem you have front steer versus rear steer is they turn opposite directions. Would be fun to drive but turning right to go left would be kinda scary. Not much available for fords, just have to hit the junkyard and turn them to see what they are. Not sure what is available on the aftermarket though. Good luck.
