Early Mustangs are cool cars that hundreds of thousands of people still enjoy cruising on a weekly bases around the country. Like all old cars though they have their shortcomings, especially when it comes to the riding and driving aspects of their existence. Our pals at Borgeson know this and they know that the factory power steering on these cars is way over-boosted, and that many of the cars have worn out and sloppy original components still on them. This is why they developed a power steering upgrade kit for the 1965 and 1966 model year Mustangs that are so popular.
This kit is comprehensive. It comes with a new pump, lines, power steering box, steering coupler, and a steering column shaft as well. You are not just putting a bandaid on an old system, you are making a significant upgrade to your car and the results are immediate and positive. You’ll have a better steering ratio, better feedback through the wheel, and you will lose that creampuff, over-boosted feeling that doesn’t really fit the sports-minded attitude of the car.
The best part of this whole program is that the entire thing installs with hand tools and as you will see in this video, there is no rocket science involved with doing the work. No exotic tools, no need for heavy shop equipment, just time and elbow grease to upgrade your driver.
Borgeson as a company has been around for more than 100 years and they manufacture, right here in the USA the highest quality steering components for Ford, GM, and Chrysler cars and trucks. From replacement parts to upgrades to individual components, they have it all. We’re proud to have them as a partner here at BangShift and look forward to more steering related fun in the future!
