Front Suspension & Steering : Mercury : Steering : 1949-51 MERCURY steering linkage upgrade kit
1949-51 MERCURY steering linkage upgrade kit
This kit corrects bad steering geometry that was engineered into these cars because the inner tie rods were way to short causing bump steer. Mercury did correct this problem in 1952-53 and this kit is superior to that design.
With this installed, the design moves the tie rods closer together with the inners face down to eliminate bump steer. This allows the tie rod to travel freely unlike stock where it will pull on the draglink.
This kit is adjustable at the pitman arm connection and allows you to fully dial in your steering and center your steering box.
The modern idler arm will improve the feel of the steering and not flex like the stock variety. This is a great choice for stock cars if you're looking to improve the handling. A must for lowered and air bagged cars!
NOTE: This kit IS compatible with dropped uprights and ball joint converted front ends.
