If you're looking to upgrade the steering in your Ford Fox Body, it doesn't have to be expensive. In this video I cover the installation of a power steering rack and solid bushings on a fox body.

The solid bushings will make the steering much more accurate. Just know that they will also transmit a lot more road feel through the steering wheel. However, you can install the solid bushings on your existing power steering rack to get the same results. So if you have worn or damaged rack bushings, consider upgrading to this solid variety for improved handling.
