    Steering Rack size

    Can anyone tell me how to work out what size steering rack I would need on an 'unknown' chassis. I have a Chassis which has had Jag FIRS fitted, but doesn't have any steering yet. I want to fit a Power Steering rack, but don't know how to work out the size. Any 'Tech's' able to advise me. Thanks, Honk

    Hi, to get as near as dammit the size you need, run an imaginary line(or real one with a straight edge) between the inner mounting points of your suspension pivots. Do this both sides. Pull a piece of string tight between the holes in the steering arms ideally with the lower arms horizontal. Where the inner pivot line intersects the straight line mark it and measure the distance between them. This is the width of rack (between knuckles) that you need.
    PAS version may be tricky to get. Also watch you get a rack that is the right orientation.ie: front or rear steer.
