Ridetech Borgeson Power Steering Upgrades for 1963-1982 Corvette
Corvette modern power steering conversion. Eliminates factory style assist cylinder.
Borgeson offers a modern integral power steering conversion for your 1963-1982 classic Corvette. The conversion box is a remanufactured GM Delphi 600 Integral power steering gearbox. The Delphi 600 represents the latest generation of integral power steering gearbox technology with true modern power steering feel, feedback and a sporty 12.7:1 ratio. Borgeson has remanufactured this box to bolt directly to the factory mounting location and to fit the stock pitman arm. On 1963-1966 models the factory column will need to be shortened approximately 2.5” for clearance of conversion box. On 1967-1982 models the factory column is collapsible, no modifications are necessary.

Steering column modifications
1963-1967 – You will need to trim approximately 2.5” off the spline steering column shaft for installation. Conversion box will then connect to the stock column with rag joint (must leave ¾” of spline to properly engage the rag joint)
1967-1982- Factory collapsible steering column, gently tap on the spline column shaft with a rubber mallet to collapse the shaft in on itself for the needed 2.5” of clearance. Conversion box will then connect to column with rag joints.
If converting from manual steering with a Big block, special pump brackets are required. Part # 11529534
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND using our Steering Box Brace to prevent eliminate box flex and possible damage to the frame rail. Part # 11539535
