    Rampage Power Steering Rack Interchange

    I have an 82 Rampage that needs the rack replaced. I want to use one from a Shelby Charger, but I'm concerned the steering column connection might be different. I know about the 2 different mounting configurations, but can't find anything about the input shaft. Since I don't have any spare "L" body parts to match up, I need to depend on you guys before I order the parts.

    TIA

    Why the swap? Why not just have the '82 re-built?

    I'd drop by and ask Chris at TU face to face, What came with a quick ratio from Mothers Factory. At least you'll know where to start looking and be able to get a part #(If you're friends with the Parts guy at your local dealership?) But then that's just the way I do stuff, Jer BTW. Do you know Johnnie in Blue Field, W.V.? He probably has that rack in an early Shelby Charger buried in the snow in his Turbo Bone Yard up there?

    Couldn't you just use or put together a coupler (matching halves?), or if not that retrofit the Shelby Charger steering column in?

    I have an SC column (with a steering wheel) collecting dust if it comes to that. Grey of course.
