Power steering mod

For those that have shortened the spring in the power steering pump. Is there any difference between the fox pump and SN95 pump? Would you shorten it by the same amount? Shortened to 1"?

I shortened my fox pump spring to 7/8, not sure about the SN95.

Makes the steering feel more firmer, which is important to some people whose racks make the steering too light.

The detail on the pump spring job starts at post 195 http://www.corner-carvers.com/forums...ad.php?t=14991

Thats awesome, I'm going to have to do it when I put my sway bar back on!

Can you do it with the pump on the car?

Not yet. Nobody's told me at what point it's too short, and I don't have a spare sitting around in case I find out for myself.

IMHO there's only so much it can do in the first place. The bigger determinant seems to be the torsion bar in the rack.

Thanks, Awesome! I'm doing some last minute finishing touches for our Lemons RX7, race this weekend, but the Mustang will get some love after that!
