Arrow Difference in Steeda bump-steer kits?

I came across a free kit #555-8103 (79-93) for my 93 coupe, but I'm going to be using a 95 k-member, control arms, & spindles with a 96 Cobra rack. Can I make this kit work? I don't know what the difference is (the length for the rack threads)?
Thanks,
Eric

You can probably make the kit work by buying the correct aluminum sleeves that thread onto the tierods. that will let you re-use the rest of the kit IF the rod ends are the right ones. Call Maximum Motorsports. They sold me the sleeves to convert a Griggs Racing bumpsteer kit.

Ok well how close are the treads? I can thread the Steeda on pretty far on this rack I have. I got it off a 96 Cobra (or so I was told).
Thoughts?

I think you should be 100% sure of what you have before doing anything else.

The bumpsteer kit's sleeves are aluminum, and not all that strong. trying to thread the sleeves onto a tierod that's "clise" is going to result in a cross-threaded situation and a bunch of chewed-up threads. Not something I want to risk my life on. Having a steering system that works is pretty high on the car's priority list -- right below "not bursting into flame unpredictably."

Yeah I agree. I'll take one if the tie-rods off the old 93 rack and see how it threads on it.

OK the rack I have is definitely a 94+. I emailed Steeda to see if I can get the sleeves from them. If not I'll call MM.
Thanks everyone.

you wouldn't have been able to use the 79-93 combo when using 95 stuff.

95 is wider and you would have run out of threads.

94+ has longer inners, and shorter outers, but the two together are wider than the two together from a fox.

Steeda emailed me back; $44.00 for the 94+ (blue) sleeves = problem solved.
Thanks everyone.
