What is your steering setup?

Post  freshlikesushi on Wed Feb 15, 2012 9:04 am

Just out of curiosity what is everyone's steering setup?

I have
Level 7 knuckles
raised rack to compensate for the suspension drop
R package tie rod ends
and im finishing up my tie rod mods today (just cutting 1/2 inch off the end, and threading more of the rod so i can have more adjustment) so i can get more caster and make easier transitions without the PS.
I need to get some S13 tie rod ends tho

What about you? What do you have, or are your plans?

This is one of the huge concerns I have with making this 240Z drift. I'm not too concerned about PS vs no PS. What I am concerned about is being able to get as much steering angle/full lock as I can, but from what I have read, the 240Z has shitty steering angle and has a lot of limiting factors to it. So if anyone has any ideas or has messed with the steering of one of these, then let me know.

Put an S13 full setup on there. Knuckles. rod ends, and you should get hte angle you need. If need be take an S13 steering unit, bolt it up, cut the steering shaft nad merge them, and get your angle. when you are READY ill come over and give it a look and take some measurements

Any of the S13 stuff that I could use would be great; that's why I completely stripped the entire wrecked S13 I had. I have everything at my house now, I just need to figure out wtf to do with it all. I really need to go to harbor freight and get a welder that won't break the bank and a stand up air compressor. But yeah man, anytime you want to come over and help out just let me know. After this week I will be free at night or on the weekends. I mean you had to have done all sorts of custom fab/welding work to that miata, so I'm sure you would be able to help me out i suck phallic objects

So, if I am going to swap racks, it would seem that people are using a 90's subaru forester rack. I found this post on the hybrid Z forum

Option1:


Parts Needed,
90's Subaru Rack (refer to previous post on length);
1983-88 Toyota Tercel inner rack ends = Moog EV168;
Stock Z Tie-Rod Ends!
Option2:


Parts Needed,
90's Subaru Rack (refer to previous post on length);
1984 Celica inner rack ends = Moog EV167;
1999 Subaru Forester tie-rod ends = Moog part ES3712!

You must have some sort of filter turned on attached to keywords.
