Steeroids vs Other Kits

Steeroids

Driving a classic that looks great and drives like a truck is no fun. That’s why we designed Steeroids rack and pinion kits originally. When comparing our kit to other manufacturers, we believe that our experience with designing and building steering conversion kits helps us offer the best kit available. We pioneered rack and pinion conversions starting with Camaro & Nova in 1998 and we know that when we buy a product we want it done right, including all the necessary parts and so we offer only complete kits, no hidden surprises.  As enthusiasts who also happen to be engineers we can add our expertise in fine tuning bump steer issues, header clearance issues, ease of install issues and geometry issues. As mentioned we only offer a COMPLETE kit – Everything you need to  replace the old steering with the new Steeroids and start having fun driving!  All without any hidden parts that you will need to find on your own or modify to make fit. Some other companies do not include pricey U-joint steering shafts or do not work with big blocks.

Brand F Camaro:

Steeroids has a quicker ratio, 2.5 turns compared to 3
Steeroids does not add bulky cradles that add extra weight
Steeroids come with new, adjustable, teflon lined tie rod ends to prevent bump steer
Steeroids offers both power and manual kits
Steeroids has better bump steer curves – less darty behavior and less wandering on the road
Steeroids maintains a tight turning radius (just slightly more than stock)

Brand F Mustang:

Brand F has a painfully slow steering ratio on the rack – they claim 4 turns lock-to-lock is a performance ratio and that 2.5 turns is way too fast for street driven cars. Yet, late model Mustangs, Corvettes, and Camaros have similarly quick ratios from the factory.
Big, bulky “cradle” mounting bracket adds significant, unnecessary weight to the car. It also takes up a lot of space that could be used for header tubes.
Bump steer? You don’t even want to know. Our kit is completely adjustable, so you can get as close to zero bump steer as is humanly possible.
Headers don’t fit. Our kit fits with headers and we provide an ever expanding list of part numbers that fit both small block and big block.
