There has been no attempt to make my ‘56 Fairlane a “correct” car, since there are so many things available now to enhance safety and performance. The following pictures and text will show you what the “Fatman Fabrications” Rack and Pinion setup looks like when installed. This article has generated a lot of interest from both Fairlane and T-Bird owners.
As an alternative to the stock 89-94 Cavalier R&P unit, a unit from the Cavalier Z74 (sporty edition) may be used. This will give a quicker steering ratio. Thanks to Frank Jurek for the alternative ratio information.
