Steering Center Link for all 1965-1966 V8 Mustangs with Manual Steering.

This Steering Center Link for all 1965-1966 V8 Mustangs with Manual Steering, runs from one inner tie rod end to the other inner tie rod end and functions as a stock replacement for your original. This is a great replacement to get from CJ Pony Parts today, especially if your original has rusted, broken or is just in pretty bad shape over all after years of hard use.

Take full control of your Mustang once again and feel the difference in the steering system of your 1965 or 1966 V8 Mustang with manual steering when you install this Steering Center Link, also known as the drag link. This steel bar is a solid piece that will securely connect the pitman arm to both of the tie rods and tighten up the manual steering in your Mustang today. This center link along with the pitman arm dip down to afford the clearance necessary with the larger oil pan in V8 Mustangs.

While steering your Mustang might be something you take for granted, especially if you have a newer Mustang, in early model Mustangs, the steering is often manual and prone to breaking. However, there is nothing to fear with CJ Pony Parts offering hundreds of Mustang Steering parts to allow you to upgrade to power steering and repair virtually anything that might go wrong with your manual steering too. Order one of these parts online or give the sales team at CJ Pony Parts a call today!

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Mustang years:

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had to have a new one My old one was at least a couple of decades old. Even though my car doesn't see a lot of miles, I think the old link's pitman joint got damaged in a drag racing mishap. I have all the steering parts cleaned and coated in natural cast and ready to re-install on the car. This one should last another 20 years I think. It was a lot shinier. The cast grey lowers the shine some but keeps the rust off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent replacement I have purchased several of these now, recently I converted a 66 mustang to manual steering linkage so I could install the borgeson power steering kit, everything there worked perfect. Last week I had to convert my 67 Shelby road race mustang from the worn out unique steering box (late 67 only) to a fresh 66 mustang steering set up. I also installed the Shelby quick ratio pitman arm and idler to get the 16:1 ratio back. This too, worked perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fit perfectly, and good quality The title says it all. I had no problem installing it in my '66 coupe with non-power steering linkage (I just installed a Borgeson kit).

On the 1966 Mustang Center Link. I need the rubber bushing that goes between the center link and the pitman arm. Had to remove the pitman arm to do a steering box upgrade and it got damage. Do you have these? What is the part number?

Asked by: nhra6577pro
Sorry we do not offer just the bushing.

Yes you could. You will also need to change the LH inner and outer tie rod end.

Will this center link fit a car with the Borgeson Manual to Power Steering Conversion?

Asked by: jowo89
That depends on which one your car was originally equipped with and which conversion kit you ordered.
