We are now offering an upgraded solution for rebuilding your MK1 steering column. Do it once and do it right!! There is no need to tear down your column only to tear it down again later to replace another expensive part. Our goal at MK1Engineering is to produce a top quality product for a reasonable price. That is exactly what we have here-
This kit includes:
1) Lower steering column bearing/ bushing - OEM part number 171 419 517-
For this we used a German bearing with almost twice as many needles as the original. The bushing we made from a much more durable material than the original. It has tighter tolerances and will not get brittle and fall out after years of use.
2) Inner race - OEM part number 171 419 518A -
The outer sleeve of the inner race is a non-corrosive material for the lower bearing to ride on. The inner portion of this race is again a much more durable material than any of the original and will not dry out, crack, or move on your column.
3) Upper steering column bushing - OEM part number 171 419 341 -
4) A 2g packet of grease for ease of installation.
this bushing fits tighter than the originals and is more forgiving. The end result is a tighter feel at your steering wheel.
This kit has been developed, tested and assembled here at MK1Engineering with the enthusiast in mind. It will not disappoint!!
With our confidence in craftsmanship and the quality of the materials we use, we are offering a LIFETIME replacement warranty on this kit. We cannot, however, warranty against improper installation.
Fits ALL MK1 chassis cars.
