Steering wheel quick release how to??

What is everyone using to mount a quick release to their mustangs? I would like to add a quick releases Momo suede wheel to my 98. If it spaces the wheel closer to the driver that would be a welcome bonus.

im using a momo monte carlo suede steering wheel with a sparco quick release hub adapter that i bought from MM. It did get the wheel closer to me and you can also get spacers to get it even closer. airbag light kinda pisses me off but i barely drive the car anyway...

I've got a Momo Mod 78 wheel with a Momo hub. I don't want a quick release because I don't have a cage and don't park it outside (for security sake), so I don't want to create an opportunity for the wheel to come off or spend the extra money on a QR setup.

I've heard good things about NRG version 2.5 - $149.

It will work with a Momo or Sparco 6 bolt hub. You'll have to remove the stock steering wheel (obvious) and install the momo/sparco hub and attach the NRG to it.

So, $80 for the momo hub, $149 for the NRG plus the wheel of your choice...NRG actually has a couple of cheaper wheels...

Thanks everyone for the help. It does not appear that MM is selling steering wheel components anymore and I am Leary of purchasing from Griggs at this time so I believe I will check out that NRG piece.

I did the LM with MULTI-splined (not just like 6, but more like 30 splines) quick release, and welded it to the steering shaft.

(Dont have photos on my site, yet)

Sweet Mfg. is now offering a splined 6 bolt quick release hub. Welding required.

I have it on my SCCA race car. I welded a 5" extension onto the stock steering shaft then welded the splined hub to it. This moved the steering wheel back closer to me and with my remote shifter, the setup works very well. I'm 6'3" and I sit very far back and low in the mustang. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

Pics are up!!!

Same setup.
The NRG THIN piece, keeps the steering wheel in the stock location.

The pic is when I had the thicker (regular) adapter. I later got the THIN adapter. Its the only pic I've got of it.

Anybody tried 1 of the Grant quick releases? Looks like they have one that slides down over the stock splines and then bolts on. Would that work for the street?

Re: Grant Quick Release

I've been using the Grant quick release hub with one of their steering wheels on my 92 coupe for years. Never had an issue with it. Mine was a snug fit. I remember having to provide a little encouragement with a bfh to get their splined adapter onto the stock column. Then I used the stock bolt in the end of the shaft. No issues at all. Doubt I could get it apart at this point but no need to as it's been flawless and would likely adapt to any wheel I chose to use.

Do you have any pics of this? I have had the Grant quick release hub for about 6-8months now and still have not installed it as I have been unsure on what wheel I want to use. Thanks.

Grant has two different quick release steering hubs. One is for anti thief and the other is for racers.

I think you will have to use a host like photo bucket. E-mail them to me and I will post them. I am going to use one and am certainly interested in seeing them. bobbya312 at yahoo.com.

i still can't decide what wheel to get, or to do this to my car. I'm building an ESP 02 stang and still drive it on the street , debating on doing this but somehow keeping the cruise setup? Even though i'm probably going to remove the A/C and stereo so whats another luxury?

Yeah, horn button with coiled wire (looks like coiled phone cable), with a quick connect/disconnect plug.

Grant quick release for racers

Thanks Racerbox77
Below are the photos of the quick release I've used on my car. The splines on the stock steering shaft created an interference fit with the inner diameter of the grant splined piece. I recall using a bfh to get it on the shaft. Then threaded the bolt in the end for peace of mind.

Can anyone tell me the part number for the grant splined quick disconnect? Can anyone tell me why most of the steering wheel disconnects won't fit a GT mustang?
