I have a 76 Chevy luv and I'm trying to make it a street truck/ drift track. I was wondering if anyone knows how to get more steering Angle and any suggestions on parts I should upgrade as far as front suspension it is stock for now but want to upgrade

There should be adjustable steering stops at each wheel that limits the turn angle. They should be set so that the wheels stop turning just before the steering gear box hits it's turn limit provided the tire clears the frame- different wheel/tire combos require different max turn angles. If they are adjusted to max wheel turn for the gearbox then swapping a longer pitman arm & matching idler arm will increase the amount the wheel will turn. These parts will have to be custom fabricated, probably by lengthening stock parts, & there is a safety issue by using non-OEM parts.

Thanks I will check that out today and see if there's room for more adjustment. It sucks there's not really a market for suspension. Looking to get this to be a daily driver but also be able to have some canyon fun
