I found that the steering stabilizer was pretty handy at bending my tie rod, though it did keep the shimmy down. (It was on the car when I bought it, along with a converted 56 F100 steering box.) I took the stabilizer off, replaced the tie rod, set the toe in and adjusted the 56 box. From then on it steered almost like power steering. I have a 56 box in my roadster and a shorter pitman arm, can turn at the curb with two fingers before moving the car, 56 is not EZ steer, never owned one of those.

I have one of these kits, but I also have one of John Kovar's POS. That't the one I "advertised" in post #10 above.

I have one of the EZ STEER units here in the shop that you can have, just come pick it up.
It is one of the biggest disappointments in re pop model A parts that I have had.
If you want a great box with excellent service look up Mel Gross here in the model A section swap meet.
His steering box is F-100 engineering and a direct bolt on application for our model A's.
He is located in Montebello California.
I am running his product with a shortened pitman arm and couldn't be happier, no slack or play, self centering, tight and smooth.
Randy Gross Montebello California 714-292-8660.

To add about using a F type steering box. I have an F2, 1948 3/4 ton pickup that rides on 16 X 7 tires and even in stock form it steer real easy and can see why that conversion is so popular.
