Re: Non IROC Steering Box
Check your outer steering arms.
If they are the short arms 5.25" from axle center to tie rod end, and you use the long 5.75" pitman arm, then the 12 to 1 ratio is going to yield around 2.25 turns lock to lock.
If you have the long pitman and long outer arms 6", with 12 to 1 box, the lock to lock is going to be almost 3 turns.
2.25 turns is rather fast, but with stiff feel valving, a 14" steering wheel, and good alignment it works well for me but some guys will feel it's too quick. The fix would be to put a short PS pitman arm on it. With the long outer arms, the steering will be fairly slow, even with the long pitman.
