Flaming River has now engineered the popular rack and pinion cradle systems for big block or small block 1955-57 Chevy vehicles. This system replaces the early long shaft steering box with an optional new Tilt column. All mounting hardware, pump, bracket, reservoir and universal joints are also included for a complete kit—hoses are sold separately. By mounting the rack on the cradle system, we not only reinforce the chassis, but also provide increased ground clearance. This true fixture welded mounting cradle fits between the frame rails and bolts in place using the original chassis location. No suspension modification is required and the system installs easily with hand tools. Full turning radius is engineered into the system.

Also, be sure to check out our great selection of steering wheels!

Power Rack and Pinion Kit Includes:

  • Paintable or Polished Tilt Column
  • Mounting Hardware
  • Wiring Connector
  • Universal Joints
  • Patented Rack & Pinion Cradle System
  • Power Steering Pump with Billet Bracket and Pulley
  • Aluminum Mounting Reservoir (Hoses sold separately)
  • Swivel Floor Mount for easy column installation


Note:  For small block vehicles, we recommend our FR50001C small block headers to avoid clearance and fitment issues. For big block vehicles, exhaust modification or replacement may be required.
