In case you haven’t noticed, the OEMs have replaced traditional hydraulic power steering with electric power steering. Electric steering eliminates heavy, bulky hydraulic lines and pumps, so it’s lighter and can be packaged to fit in tight engine compartments. The factories made the switch for fuel economy, but the advantages of electric power steering make it ideal for updating your classic muscle car, truck, or street rod to modern steering.

Summit Racing now carries EPAS Performance electric power steering kits that make the swap a cinch. The kits use an electric motor and a control module to provide power assist. The control module measures the amount of effort applied to the steering wheel and tells the electric motor to apply the needed power assist. You can dial in the amount of assist you want with the potentiometer—for example, set the system at maximum for parking and less when driving on the highway. And in the unlikely event you lose electrical power, you still retain full manual steering control.
