Flaming River Power Rack and Pinions are ideal for upgrading your Camaro, Chevelle, El Camino, Nova, or A/G Body to the comfort and reliability of a modern power steering system. Flaming River Power Racks offer more than 6” of travel for full turning radius, and are made with all new parts—including the valve and piston! Plus, their Power Racks are made in the USA in Berea, OH and are fluid, pressure tested, and certified before they leave Flaming Rivers facility.


Q: What are the benefits of upgrading from my stock steering system to a Rack and Pinion system?

A: Flaming River Rack and Pinions are made with all new parts and are not rebuilt, so you eliminate old and worn out steering parts. Their Steering Racks give you the benefits of a modern steering system, and they are more durable, lighter, and more responsive than the original recirculated ball steering box. Plus, Flaming River’s Rack and Pinions retain the full factory turning radius and offer more travel than an OE steering system.
