The GKTECH 240SX steering rack spacer features 4130 steel zinc-coated tie rod extenders, which are high tensile parts for extra durability and performance. The extenders screw onto the end of either standard or aftermarket tie rods and allow the tie rods to travel further into the steering rack, which creates more steering lock. This set is great for drifting, or even getting out of tight parking spots! The extenders can be used either with or without the extra washer (included) to offer a grand total of 19mm of extra lock without compromising on the amount of thread left in the steering rack.
DIY installation is possible for this 240SX steering rack spacer kit. Installation is not as easy as the washer install, but it isn’t too difficult.
This set is compatible with the following vehicles:
Nissan S13 Silvia
Nissan S14 200SX

DO I NEED TO BUY 1 OF THESE RACK SPACERS OR 2?
You only need to buy 1 as it's not possible to run 2 unless you're running near zero Ackerman (probably unlikely).
HOW DOES THIS 240SX STEERING RACK SPACER WORK?
The steering rack spacer screws between the steering rack and your passenger side tie rod. This allows the steering rack to travel an extra 13mm while the washer, which should be installed on the driver’s side, allows for an additional 6mm of travel. This gives a grand total of 19mm of additional steering rack travel, which results in more lock.
I'VE INSTALLED THE RACK SPACER AND I'VE GOT A HEAP OF TOE IN, WHAT HAPPENED?
You need to trim your passenger side tie rod down around 13mm to counteract the extra 13mm that you've just put into the length of the rack. Do NOT trim too much off or else you'll need to get a new tie rod.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS SCREW-ON STEERING RACK SPACER AND THE LOCK WASHERS THAT YOU SELL?
The steering rack spacer gives in total an additional 19mm of travel whereas the lock washers only offer 12mm of travel (6mm each).
