XW-XY is different mounting to XF. See post above for link .They will not bolt up without mods to chassis.

I have an XT falcon. It has XF power steering. It was like that when I got it so I don't know what mods (if any) were done to it. You are welcome to come and have a look if you like.

Default Re: XF steering Box into XY

Hi guys, I have an XY 351 Cleveland C4 auto sedan and I have installed an XF power steering box, it works perfectly but I don't have enough clearance between it and the extractors. Does anyone know of a set or brand that will clear the steering box .
