The GKTECH high tensile 4130 zinc coated tie rod extenders screw on to 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. Great for drift or getting out of parking spots.
This rack spacer set offers a grand total of 16mm (5/8") of rack travel equating to around 12-15 degrees of extra lock without compromising on the amount of thread left in the steering rack.

NOTE: will not work with OEM tie rod ends on stock LCA's. You will need to either go to inners with more thread or go to an aftermarket outer with more adjustment (like the Z34 outers we sell)
How does this steering rack spacer work?
The steering rack spacer screws between the steering rack and your inner tie rod. It allows the steering rack to travel an extra (16mm). That extra 16mm (5/8") of rack travel gives approximately 12-15 degrees more lock.
I've installed the rack spacer and I've got a heap of toe in, what happened?
After you have centred your rack (this is CRUCIAL) you will need a wheel alignment. You may also need need to either trim your inner tie rods down to counteract the length that you've just put into the length of the rack or go to an inner with more adjustment. Whether you need to trim the tie rods down depends on your setup. Do NOT trim too much off or else you'll need to get a new tie rod and only trim down once you've centered the rack. Note that the LH side has a larger spacer so it will need the most attention.
