ive been looking into this option as well, astras have them, so do a lot of european cars to,my concern is that the rack bolts to the firewall but,,, could b located on back of crossmember like commy would b, but unsue as to weather the link from colum to rack wat angle it would be on, mmm i fitted an lc lj torana front end into 1 of my fjs, real easy to do, no modified bits other than linking the colum to the rack, but wasnt difficult at all, im in the process of fitting a lh,lx sunbird front end in my ej, bit of work but well worth it,

I am sure I was told many many years ago, that fitting the Camira rack would need mods as it turned in the opposite direction when fitting to the FJ steering geometry. The memory is not good but I am sure someone on here will correct me. AL

FJ Sedan, FJ Ute, all Steel.

yes I also looked at this years ago, they are a great design, but difficult to mount in early Holden with indent in firewall for engine.

If you mount in front of crossmember it will go the wrong way, but if mount to rear of crossmember it would be fine.

Wow sounds like the rack I have already it has been modified to fit to the steering box holes and older arm holes but I'm unsure yet of the clearance with a v6

Guy here says he used a Mazda 323/ Ford Laser rack in his EH. Right length and tie rod ends fitted up.
