Not to necro-thread and may create my own if necessary... but I've recreated the Corvette ZR1/Sport/NS steering adapters in CAD and am looking for online quotes for running a batch.

If anyone is interested in participating in the obtaining these adapters let me know.

I'm currently creating quotes through emachineshop.com, finegrainmetal.com, and RapidMachining.com. If anyone knows of any reputable online or local machine shops around them to engage with that are friendly to automotive hobbyists, please let me know.

Also have instructions on how to create the steering rack bracket from a single piece of 3"x3"x1/4" square steel tube. It's a little overkill but keeps the complexity of the bracket to a minimum...

thanks!

Does anyone still offer any of the adapters or drawings for the rack mount?

Can I post here? Is it somehow locked up?
Are any of these still available?

I had a CNC machine shop make some sets for me. I believe I sold all of them.

I have access to a whole 1984 corvette, no engine/trans. It still has the rack. I don't remember reading here whether this can be done to a pre 88, can it?
Or could I swap the whole 88 front suspension over?
