The aftermarket has installed them on practically every car out there and a lot of them work just fine. What most people don't understand is that one rack doesn't fit all regardless of what people tell you. A Pinto rack installed on a fourth generation F-car will create excessive bump-steer unless measures are taken to correct the problem.The overall distance between the inner tie rod pivot points should match the overall distance between the A-arm pivot points. Any variation to this will cause the tie rods and A-arms to swing on two seperate arcs. This means the vehicles toe will change as the suspension travels up and down, otherwise known as bump steer. The fourth generation F-body A-arms pivot from a width that is 2 inches wider than the inner tie rod pivot points of a Pinto-style rack and pinion. To compensate for this, BMR provides a custom width rack just for this application.
Another benefit to designing from the ground up is that the rack extension has been biased to the passenger side of the vehicle. By doing so, the steering shaft is relocated an additional inch to the drivers side allowing much improved header clearance. With this kit you can use up to 2 primary tube headers without modification! Other components in the kit include Flaming Rivers' billet, bearing-style u-joints custom sized to the OE steering shaft, billet rack mount adapter and double-threaded tie rod ends. We use QA1 XR series rod ends and CNC machined bump spacers.This is a straight forward bolt-in installation requiring no fabrication or welding. All mounting hardware and installation instructions included. BMR makes manual rack conversions for practically any application.

Proudly Made in USA By American Workers!When BMR began back in 1998, it was difficult for performance automotive consumers to find suspension products that had an innovative design, quality construction, and an affordable price. BMR turned this market void into a business philosophy and has been serving our customer's needs ever since. BMR Suspension products are proudly made in our manufacturing facility near Tampa. We cut, bend, notch, drill, and mill our tubular components from American-made DOM and chrome-moly steel. Every product is fixture-welded to maintain consistent quality. We bead-blast our parts and then powdercoat them on our own powdercoating line. Then we assemble and package the products in our assembly department. By manufacturing our products in house, BMR can control the quality at every stage of the manufacturing process.
