Steering Boxes & Spindles

Where’s the last place you want to cut corners when building a vehicle for any type of racing? How about the drag link steering? That leaves you faced with the prospect of using the big, old, clunky, OEM steering gear box. Unless you take advantage of a lightweight (5.25-pounds) Strange Billet Steering Box.

That’s right; each Strange Steering Box is proudly made in the USA. Manufactured with a lightweight 6061-T6511 billet aluminum body, each steering box is strategically outfitted with a 4-bolt mounting pattern on the right-hand side and a 2-bolt left-hand support. Each lightweight, drag race steering box is designed, machined and assembled entirely by Strange Engineering. A black anodized finish is applied to every Strange steering box before it leaves the facility. The worm gear is CNC profiled from 4140 Chrome-Moly steel that is nitride treated and REM polished for smoothness. The sector shaft is made from 17-4 stainless steel and is .750-inch in diameter. The pitman arm is CNC pocket milled from 4140 Chrome-Moly steel.

Strange Steering Boxes have a ratio of 10:1. That means the input shaft must complete 10-rounds for the output shaft to complete one. The steering box has two full turns before it locks. Each Strange Steering Box also includes a Strange Steering Hub Sleeve. Strange Steering Boxes are recommended for front engine powered drag cars such as Funny Car, Front Engine Dragster and Altered. Additional mounting holes provide a secure mounting solution. This yields a more consistent feel with less vibration. Nitriding the worm gear delivers superior durability and increased longevity. Nitriding is a heat-treating process that creates a case-hardened surface.

The splined end on the steering shaft gives you plenty of adjustment for aligning the pitman arm. Strange Steering Boxes work on front engine cars with drag link steering systems.  Trust Strange Steering Boxes to get your Alcohol FC, Nostalgia FC, Dragster/Altered and Top Fuel FC vehicles down the track and through the trap straight.
