Standard 2.7 ratio steering rack for left hand drive cars, Mk II and later, except Sportspack.
If you are interested in performance driving then you know reaction time from the driver to the car is critical; the time it takes to turn the steering wheel to the desired angle is important! The stock steering rack is 2.7 turns lock to lock, our quick ratio version is 2.2
Does not include steering tie rod ends. See GSJ100 for standard tie rod ends and GSJ158 for longer tie rod ends for lowered cars.
Will fit Mk I cars as long as the steering arms are also changed. See BTA896 and -897.
For left hand drive quick ratio (2.2), see C-FAM7307
For right hand drive, see GSR626E and C-GSR626.
The data on this page relates to all Minis unless specified. Major changes to suspension and steering are limited to the introduction of a new steering rack and steering arms for Mk2-on models. Mk2 steering arms have two `ears' to aid in the use of ball joint splitters; this is how they may be differentiated from Mk1 steering arms.
Very early Mk1 Minis (to around 1960) were made with 3 inch rims instead of 3.5 inch. The earliest 3 inch rims were made out of very thin steel which was soon thickened by 20 thou.
Always use matching steering racks and arms (i.e. all Mk1 or all Mk2-on).
