Can you do a straight swap of a 19:1 steering box with a shelby style 16:1.. If I get the Idler arms and pitman arms to match I think there will be a great improvement in steering but I dont know if this is as inter changable as I think it is..

also has anyone used the Power brake booster from Master power (saw this in a Mustang weekly article http://www.mustangweekly.com/2001/march/powerbrakes/brakesp1.asp )


Thanks

Yes, it will swap over, and you'll love the difference.

If you really want to muscle up, add the Shelby quick steer kit. Its a longer pitman and idler arm kit. Parallel parking with fat tires will build muscles.

Kcode cars had the same steering box HCAX
