Volvo 740 racks
July 14, 2019 06:58AM
Does there exist a quick rack setup for a Volvo 740?

I'm aware that everything under the sun is available for the 240, but of course the 740 had to be different.

The drifty boys use a bolt on steering arm that makes the steering quicker. They're less than a standard column steering quickener.
Bolt on 700/900: http://www.retroturbo.com/?product=volvo-740-940-parallel-steering-angle-kit-mkm

For a 240: http://www.retroturbo.com/?product=volvo-740-940-parallel-steering-angle-kit-txr-2


Or cut and weld the knuckle, or use a steering quickener, or spend ~$1k USD for a quick rack from Sellholm in Sweden.

After playing with the quickener in my RX-7, I'm not too keen on doing it again.

The fast steering is wonderful, the implementation isn't the best.
