Other option for front steer steering rack?

Recommended Posts

You mean the steering box is in front of the wheels like the Datsun trucks?

I assume you mean the tie rod pivots being in front of the ball joint. 

 

A trick we learned, dont eliminate rear steer as an option. If thhey sold a RHD version of a rear steer car you can buy that ravk and flip it to use in a LHD front steer system.

Will it have enough turn radius??? Wouldn't rear steer be very subtle and just slightly turn the wheels??

Look at MKII Ford Escort racks.  Similar width to many Datsuns as well as being front steer.  Also came in LHD and RHD.  New racks are available in many different ratio's.
