    Not that simple unfortunately. Rack has to fulfil lots of measurements directly related to suspension positioning to work and not turn it into a mishandling pile.


    Do you want it to work with an original beam or a custom / oem IFS set up?

    It will be on struts. I recall flipped Fiat 127 racks being the thing to use back in the day.

    IF the rack mounts to the front of wheels then any modern front wheel drive car will have a suitable ish rack-but as stated it depends on many other things-but some of the smaller super minis may be a good start.

    There is an intersection point that the inner ball joints must be the exact width or you'll get bumpsteer. Most simply make the rack the width of the inner TCA mounts and then run them parallel with the track control arms, not quite right but works on a drag strip .

    Its for a tube chassis car with coilover struts and the steering rack is to go infront of the front wheels rather than behind. Ive heard fiat might do it ! If you can let me know the measurements as soon as you can that would be great !

    Can't you get your existing one rebuilt ? Or isn't aligned correctly ?
