JCO2352-1JConcepts has the steering system on the B5, B5M, T5M and SC5M covered with an all new light-weight, aluminum steering rack. The rack is CNC-machined and replaces the stock plastic piece, the steering rack by JConcepts comes in a blue or black anodized finish and sports machined chamfered silver edges and engraved JConcepts.net logo. The aluminum, light-weight assembly provides a more rigid steering system with increased steering feel and response.

The rack includes 2 thin crush tubes (black) which should be placed in between the bearings in the rack. During assembly it is important to align the crush tubes into place and while securing the parts together, always use a light amount of thread locking compound on any thread which assembles into aluminum.
