Steeroids Rack and Pinion steering conversion kits are now available for 1953-1962 Corvettes which will update the 1940s steering design on your solid-axle classic to the latest 21st century standards. This is a true bolt-on kit that can be power assisted, something never offered on C1 Corvettes from the factory! Steeroids do not require any drilling, cutting or welding on the Corvette. Tighter, more responsive steering feel and lighter weight are all advantages to this system. Steeroids rack and pinion kits include an exciting quick ratio rack yielding approximately 2.5 turns lock-to-lock at the wheel. Steeroids kits also include adjustable tie rod ends to effectively eliminate bump steer so that your Corvette not only steers better, it actually handles better! Both power and manual kits are available.

Steeroids kits are completely bolt-on and without modification so you can return your Corvette to its factory (original) steering at any time. Which can only be done by providing you a completely new steering column for your steering system upgrade. Steering columns are available in chrome, black or paintable which would allow you to paint to match your C1 Corvette's interior.

Here are just some of the benefits of Steeroids rack & pinion system for your 1953-1962 Corvette:

  • Offers Improved Steering Feel: Recirculating ball steering is vague and unresponsive, especially "on center". Control is greatly enhanced.
  • Offers Quicker Ratio: Steeroids power kits yield approximately 2.5 turns lock-to-lock (~2.9 for manual).
  • Effectively Eliminates Bump Steer: Only Steeroids offers adjustable tie rod ends to keep your car grounded and avoid darty behavior by keeping your alignment (bump steer) curves in check.
  • Lighter Weight: Compared to the stock steering system.
  • Bolt-On Installation: Absolutely no welding, cutting or drilling. Installs with basic hand tools in approximately 6 hours. Includes rack & pinion, adapter brackets (powder coated black), adjustable tie rod ends (self cleaning & lubricating, Teflon lined), u-joint assembly, and new steering column (chrome, black or paintable)
  • Power Steering options include everything to convert to power rack and pinion (or you can stay manual if you desire). Parts included power steering pump, power steering pulley, engine mount brackets, and the power steering hoses to the rack & pinion.
  • Steeroids Come As A Complete Kit: All necessary parts are included, including all mounting hardware for a no-hassle installation.

This 1953-1962 Steeroids Rack & Pinion kit is designed to be installed on C1 Corvettes WITH HEADERS.Designed to fit with Hooker Competition Headers Part # 2456-HKR and 2456-1HKR. If your early model Corvette does not have headers installed, please see Zip item # SC-799.

Note: 1955-1962 Corvette Steeroids rack & pinion kits require 2-3 weeks lead time for production prior to shipping. Please consider this delay in availability when placing your order.
