    Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    Extra lock bolt on steering arms for mk1&2 escorts, capri, 100e, 105e and anything using the old ford struts with bolt on steering arms.
    20mm shorter than standard.
    Standard ackerman for excellent normal driving characteristic, but tons of extra lock for sideways action.
    Taper is standard RS track rod end.
    Bolt on with original imperial hardware.
    Drill taper out for rose joint use and drill mounting bolts to 10mm for metric M10 fixings.
    CNC machined in Plymouth, Devon from EN8 steel.
    Zinc passivated gold for rust protection.







    125 + 8 fully insured postage.

    I can vouch for this seller as it's a friend who's selling them and my car in the picture's.
    Arm's are a direct replacement and increase steering lock a lot.

    Paypal is the_4th_jump@hotmail.com

    These arms arent different to standard other than 20mm shorter. If your wanting to tune bump steer on your specific set up (ride height, track width, lower arm etc) then id recomend fitting rose joint track rod ends and using spacers to fine tune the bump steer.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    You'll have to go wider track, or lower offset wheels. Only way around it really.

    What are these like for normal driving? Are these something that should only be used off road?

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    Standard ackerman so drive like normal however because they are shorter they do quicken the steering.

    Ill do a special 108 posted price to clear the last few pairs.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    I have just bought a quick rack to fit on the car, at higher speeds would the car be too fast on steering? I have never seen these used so I don't know much about them.

    Thanks

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    I use some shorter steering arms also, with a short rack, no issue at high speed.
    It seems the brain can adjust itself the 'fast' steering...
    My car doesn't go above 155 km/h by the way.
