If your bus has been lowered, you will soon find out how vulnerable the steering box is.

This product provides a simple elegant solution to the problem, lifting the steering box well clear of trouble, even on slammed rides.

As fitted by the countries leading custom and restoration businesses in the UK & throughout the world.

 

For an original steering wheel height relative to the dashboard, then it is recommended to shorten the steering box by 42mm. The strongest and safest method is to re-machine the steering wheel taper and thread in the new position. Cut'n'shut steering columns can be dangerous & lead to steering columns distorted by the welding. The shortening service is available on request.

If you have tubbed front arches / raised seats, then raising the steering box but not shortening the steering column improves the clearance between steering wheel and the driver's legs.

Installation sequence:

Remove the steering box. (This is detailed in the "How Too" section of this website under the title "RHD Steering Rack Conversion")
