Cobra rack in a Fox?

Desi 18.12.2010, 18:32
Anyone ever put a mach/cobra rack in a foxbody? I have read you need the MM rag-joint to adapt it to the fox shaft, but I have the cobra rag-joint & shaft, will these mount up into a fox without issue?

I guess try it and report back! its pretty easy to pop the old rack off....

The rack will mount to the car at the k-member but will not mount correctly at the rag joint. You will need the adapter and a later model shaft

fox or svo? true the svo is a fox, however there are differences in the front suspension between a gt fox and the svo. maximum motorsports has an awesome customer support department, and know everything about the fox chassis, but they need all the details.

When I get my SVO back from the body shop, i'll have a rack. It is the 84 model that has a different ratio than the later ones though.

^^True on all the above, I think I am going with a cardone reman'd rack, I am trading an old shitted up from a parts car as a core, yeah the 84-85 was a 20:1 the 85.5-86 was a 15:1, I think I want to keep the 20:1 as it feels pretty good to me so will see what happens.

15:1 is wwwwwaaaaaaayyyyyy better imo... and the steering rack was the same as 5.0 cars on fox/svo fox cars. the 20:1 rack stayed on 4cyl foxes after 83. All svo's and 5.0 cars had 15:1 from 83 onward

Wrong....The 84 SVO has the 20:1 rack

Well, I got the rack (went with the 15:1 after all, it is the only one that I could verify had the right valving so as not to steer like a Lincoln).. now I just have to see who I can con/bribe/pay off to install the damn thing.

You'll be happy with the 15:1. My 20:1 is coming out soon, along with the k member, factory koni's, control arms, brakes, engine, trans...
