With any vehicle, the ability to steer the vehicle where you want it to go is important. In this installment of the #FairmontProject I install the manual rack I got from a viewer in Washington State as part of a package suspension deal.
Some may disagree with my choice of manual rack for this build and to be honest, I do too. That’s why I have purchased a power steering rack that I’ll be installing with the new K member and front suspension. I think the manual rack would have been fun, but as I’ve said time and again, I want to drive this car. Power steering will make driving it that much more fun.
So, before you get all butt hurt in the comments, read the description!
