Wurth Rack???

Hey guys here's the deal, I bought a rack last fall and yes it was a pain dealing with this guy, I guess he has serious health problems with both him and his wife, well to make a long story shorter It took about two months more than promised to get the unit. It installed easy but as time went on I had to address some serious problems. First this unit is in my 62 406 car with a TKO five speed. I used Crites headers thinking everything would go under the steering and clear. Drivers side hits the tie rod on number 6 and number four hits the passenger bracket that holds up that end of the unit. I fixed both these problems by turning over the tie rods using a heim joint and bolt instead of the standard Ford tie rod. I had a muffler shop cut and shape header #4 to fit. Now I am dealing with what I term as rotation "flop" at the U joints that connect the rack to the steering, Even using the double Borgenson U joint the angles are steep and bind a little. I am at a loss as how to fix this problem, the rack needs to be rolled a little to ease up on the angles or a new joint . Anybody here have this unit installed and working please sign in and help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Later Neil

I've had that problem on a street rod. I think that you need a support bearing to keep everything in line. It keeps it from trying to flip flop. try this place.
