In doing research for an upgraded steering box conversion - I’ve run into some variables that I’d to see if anyone has thoughts on. Lares make the 1353, 970, 971, 972, 973 and a 974 steering boxes. The 972 & 974 are 10:1 fast ratio steering box. In speaking with a Lares rep. today he is suggesting that the fast ratio box would be to much for a simple street driver car, it’s more of a street/race car application. And others on different forum boards have differing opinions on the close ratio as well. His recommendation was the 970 box. The scenario with the fast ratio would be if I tried to swerve to miss a pot hole, it could have a reaction so quick that it would throw me into the ditch at higher speeds...don’t know if I believe that, but that’s was the explanation??? Luckily for me Jegs is headquartered here in Columbus and I have several go to guys there I can ask questions, so I asked them what they’d recommend? They are recommending Borgeson 800205 - https://tinyurl.com/y9z755rg Reason being its a variable ratio and not a fixed ration? Has anyone used the variable ratio box and is it or would it be better than the Lares 970 box? The price difference doesn’t really matter - just trying to optimize my decision for the conversion. Thoughts? Eric PS: I checked my own cars ratio from Lock to lock and it was 4.25 turns - thought that was excessive. The 970 box is 3.25 lock to lock and that would be an immediate improvement. The 972/974 would be 2.5 lock to lock.
