Heim Joint Steering Systems, 1966-77 Early Classic Ford Bronco Drag Link Tie Rod Stone crusher
Heim Joint Steering Systems, 1966-77 Bronco
Our Price: $359.95

Replace your weak or rock-rashed stock steering with one of our tough new heim joint steering systems. We use 1.25” DOM tubing with an 0.2815” wall thickness. We thread the tube (no weld-in insert) for maximum strength and clearance. We attach the drag link to the tie rod via a welded on "saddle". This maintains factory geometry and allows for maximum articulation. It also eliminates the use of long spacers and greatly reduces applied torque on the passenger side steering knuckle. We include machined misalignment spacers and high quality, Teflon-lined, 3/4” rod ends with GR8 bolts to prevent binding and allow full articulation of the joint. Our system does require drilling out your stock knuckles and pitman arm to 3/4” (If you have James Duff steering knuckles, they are already machined to 3/4”). This can be accomplished with a common hand drill and a 3/4" drill bit. The system can be installed under or over the knuckle. We include a complete hardware kit with all metal unitorque nuts and cotter pins to secure everything in place. Comes black powder coated with detailed instructions.

We keep two basic setups in stock. Setup A: For use with the 48” (knuckle to knuckle), 66-75 Early Bronco drum knuckles, or disc conversions using Duff, Chevy, or the '79 F150/Bronco knuckle. Setup B: Measures 51” (knuckle to knuckle) and works with stock 76-77 Ford disc knuckles. The tie rod length is measurement "A". To get you the correct system, we need two additional measurements from your vehicle. First, be sure that your front tires have 1/4" of toe-in. With the vehicle fully laden, sitting at ride height, and on level ground, pull a string from the driver side steering knuckle to the passenger side steering knuckle and tie it taught. Pull a second string from the underside of the pitman arm, PARALLEL WITH THE TRAC BAR, towards the passenger side steering knuckle. Be sure to keep the string parallel with your trac bar! Make a mark on and note the location on both strings at the point where the upper and lower strings are 1 1/2" apart. Measure from the passenger side steering knuckle back to the mark you just made on the lower string. This is the location of your saddle and measurement "B". Next, measure from the center of the pitman arm along the upper string to the point where you made your mark on your upper string. This is the length of your drag link and measurement "C". (Pre-built units are based upon steering boxes and all other components in the stock location.) Call for information and pricing on custom setups.

(For street-driven vehicles, check your local regulations before ordering. Some states will not pass inspection with heim joints in the steering system.) Please note that these systems are not compatible with a shock mounted to the front of the C-Cap. Shocks must be behind the coil. Steering stabilizer setups will need modification to be reinstalled. Please note that UPS recently started accessing a $15.00 added handling fee to packages over 48" will be added to the calculated total.

Power Steering Conversion Kit 1966-77 Bronco Quick Ratio Classic Early Bronco
Power Steering Conversion Kit, 1966-77 Bronco
Our Price: $1,025.00

This system features a power steering box that bolts directly to the Early Bronco frame with NO drilling! Direct bolt up means this system is as easy as it gets for adding that much needed power steering to your Early Bronco. It uses a slightly modified version of our tried and true Saginaw Power Steering pump in combination with our specially built tight tolerance (for less slack in the wheel) steering box. Short 3 3/4 turn box means quick response and excellent control for a "sporty" feel.

Cast in gussets on the box and option to drill a 4th hole thru the frame make for a stronger case to stand up to the stress bigger tires inflict. Stock pitman arm bolts right up. Sits the same distance below the frame as a stock box so factory steering geometry is maintained, so it works on stock height or lifted rigs. Comes with all necessary components including box, brackets, hoses, aluminum pulley for the pump, steering shaft coupler and all necessary hardware.

Shown with #3230 kit that allows you to utilize the fourth bolt hole for even more strength, see separate description.
Power Steering Heavy Duty Bracket, 1966-77 Early Classic Bronco Ultimate Power steering reinforcement
Power Steering Heavy Duty Bracket, 1966-77 Bronco
Our Price: $29.95

Bracket and installation kit for use with our Ultimate Steering Conversion Kit Steering Box. Recommended for serious crawlers or those with weakened frame areas. Allows the utilization of the fourth bolt hole on our heavy duty box that skims the top of the frame rail along with a support plate that mounts on the engine side of the frame rail. Clear as mud, right? The diagram explains it best. We came up with this kit after Suzy sheered two of the bolts off of Hi Ho Silver's box while wheeling in Moab and messed up her hand...
Tracking Track Bar Drop Bracket 1966-75 Classic Early Ford Bronco
Track Bar Drop Bracket 1966-75 Bronco
Our Price: $49.95

Lifting a Bronco causes the front end to shift towards the driver side. The greater the lift, the more pronounced the shift. This bracket re-centers the front end. The shorter tracking bar on 66-75's magnifies the problem, so we've given that drop bracket a 2 position adjustment to match the needs of each vehicle. Recommended for use with 3-4" of lift. Complete with mounting hardware. Welding is required.

Track Bar Raise Bracket, 1966-77 Early Classic Ford Bronco Tracking Bar Steering
Track Bar Raise Bracket, 1966-77 Bronco
Our Price: $69.95

We now have an alternative to the age old classic track bar drop bracket. Using a raise bracket aligns the track bar from the bottom by raising the axle mounting location versus using a drop bracket which can put stress on a weakened old frame. It also keeps the steering up higher and out of the way of trail obstacles. Made of 1/4" steel plate with gusseted reinforcement to 1/2" in critical areas. Ours is designed to work with our heavy duty lower coil retainers without modification, unlike others on the market. For use with 3.5"+ lift, necessary with our Knuckle Flip Kit on a 76-77.

Easy to install as it self locates off the original mount. Comes bare because it requires welding for installation. Includes hardware.
