I’m using chevette rack with 3rd gen nova steering arms. Wondering if I should swap to the chevelle arms to raise the tie rod up. Even though the pivot and angle looks like it follows the arc of the CA I still have some slight bump steer( wife standing on front end making it bounce while I watch geometry)
The steering arms look too low to me.. How is the rack mounted to the car?
Ideally, you want to get the articulating joints of the steering rack to be as close to the same horizontal plane as the control arms. The control arm chassis pivots and the ball joints will be what you need to match the rack up with.. The flatter the better. Also, you want to see if you can get arms that will get you better Ackerman.. They should turn slightly outboard just a little wider the the ball joints on a forward steering setup ..
I plan on going with tubular lowers in the near future. If I use chevelle arms it will raise the tie rods up. The rack has mounts welded to the crossmember similar to bills2 I can post pics of that when I get off work. My rack looks like it’s mounted same height as cbr did their early rack except chuck used chevelle arms instead of 3rd gen arms like Bill.
