New Steering Box, which ratio?
I need to order a new steering box for my 65 mustang. its manual steering and im keeping it manual so I have the choice between a 16:1 and a 20:1 ratio. Im not sure which is better for a non power steering car. I understand the 20:1 will be easier to turn but will take more revolutions of the steering wheel to turn the wheels but is it really that big of a difference in easiness between the 16:1 and 20:1? Does anybody know the stock ratio of manual steering? Keep in mind that I am also running on new edge 17x8 bullitts so its already a little hard to turn with the wide tire.
