    I used the rack from a chevrolet beretta but all other parts were custom made. Never made it to the road though because the tie rods hit the sway bar at max steering angle. Since I was in a hurry to get it back on the road I removed everything and installed the steering box again.
    But it worked fine (in my garage).

    If one day I have more time again, I will start all over.
