  1. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    I have a 2008 Mustang GT that has been turned into an SCCA T3 Racecar. Took it to it's first test day, and first session the car ran flawlessly. Second session, the car developed a power steering issue at high RPM. Anything below ~4800RPM, and the power steering works fine. Anything above...

    I remember a few years ago there being a way to convert the power steering on a Fox 5.0 to have a remote power steering fluid reservoir. I do open track days, and the stock power steering reservoir leaves a lot to be desired. I seem to recall it was based off Thunderbird parts, but I can't...

    I hear a whirr sound when I am stil (not moving).i do not hear it when driving or when the car is moving and I turn...only when stopped. I thought I was just low on power steering fluid, but after topping off power steering fluid, I still have the sound. Is the only possibility a bad power...

    I am planning on adding power steering to my 68 Fastback. I am looking at CJ Pony Parts right now but the kits are really expensive. Does anyone know any cheaper alternatives for power steering?

    Hello Everyone! About a year ago I upgraded the manual steering in my Mustang '67 for a Power Steering, however (twice now) it has happened that the bolt that assembles the steering wheel column to the rest of the system breaks if I ever move the steering when the car is off (emergency cases...

    So I start my car this morning and when I cut the wheel to get out of my parking spot, my steering wheel got really tight and my brake pedal started vibrating. I also heard a whine from what sounded like the right side of the engine compartment. I get out and there's fluid all over my front...

    Hi I did a track day at Thunderhill and when I pulled into the pits, my power steering was whining and upon inspection had lost most of the fluid in the reservoir. The strange part is that there was clear signs that the fluid was spraying upward (i.e. underside of hood sprayed, CAI tube, top of...

    Im kind of new at doing mechanical work so i was wondering if anyone could give me a quick run down of how to take off the pump off after opening the hood. I have all the tools needed for the job and a buddy said he would switch the pully out if i can figure out how to get the pump off. All of...

    Just started having this problem with our 1966 power steering. It has been working fine until recently. When we turn to the left, it is difficult to turn. I assume that the power assist is not working. Turning right is just fine, and the car returns to center from both directions. As far as...

    Just ran into an issue with the power steering on our newly restored 1965. We installed a new power steering pump a couple of weeks ago. The power steering lines are new, but the control valve and power cylinder are original. The car has been driving fine for a couple of weeks and just this...

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the site and could really use some help. I have a 1970 Mach 1 351C. I bought it in Jan with manual steering and had a power steering conversion kit installed. I bought the only complete kit I could find for a 351C from CJ Pony Parts. I regret the product I bought and...

    I have had this problem for months now. When I turn the steering wheel to the left, the car makes an awful, loud screech as if something needs to be lubricated...BAD. Lol. I replaced my balljoints and strut mounts and it went away for a bit, but came back. Please help

    Hey Guys, Brand new owner of a Mustang here... just picked up an '02 Mustang Convertible (3.8l, auto) earlier this week. So far I love the car, and this forum is already becoming a great resource for me. One of the issues that the car had straight off the bat was the top not wanting to go up...

    I have posted about bypassing the power steering. I want to know if anyone has any advise about deleting the hydroboost for a brake booster?? If so which brake booster would work for my 96 gt 4.6L? Also, would the Power steering line going to the Hydroboost, then from the hydroboost to the...

    Over the past few weeks I have noticed my power steering whine getting louder. Yes, I know that it’s common knowledge that these are notoriously loud but it is driving me crazy. Especially as I spiral thru a parking garage with the sound echoing back at me. Not fun. If I have a new pump...

    Just wondering if there was a way to drain the power steering fluid or replace it without having to suck it from the reservoir with the turkey baster method...i noticed a hose running down from the reservoir just wondering if i can simply pop the clamp off and pull off the hose and let it drain...

    Hi All, New to the Forum, have a question regarding the Borgeson power steering upgrade unit. Bought this for my ford 4 speed 67 mustang. The unit won't work with the factory Z bar - thought I could tweak it and make it fit, of course I was mistaken. Has anyone stayed with a Z bar...
