After several weeks of driving our car with the Steeroids power rack, we've come away even more impressed. Though our car's total turning radius has increased slightly with the new rack, the trade-off is well worth it.

Overall we'd say this is one of the most dramatic and noticeable improvements we've made to our '71 Stingray thus far. Eliminating the sloppy, heavy factory steering box, questionable steering valve, and stock tie rods makes the car safer and more reliable. Even better, our Corvette is much more fun to drive now, and though the car's handling is still limited by the factory suspension components, the steering certainly feels like a Corvette of much newer vintage. Follow along and we'll show you how easy Speed Direct's Steeroids rack-and-pinion kit installs.
