I've talked to Steeroids a couple of times over the last year on their upcoming R&P kit for Chevelles (really all the A body cars). They are anticipating that this will be a bigger market than even their current Nova & Camaro kits...but there seem to be some technical difficulties in putting a suitable conversion kit together.
I hope they get it worked out.

I too have been looking for a rack & pinion setup. Other than steeroids, I have not been able to find anything for A body's. Though if someone does have the info on one that is available, I would be VERY interested in it. I have contacted steeroids via email, but did not recieve a response as to when they will have their kit completed.

Aside from the quick ratio steering, they claim to shave off about 25 pounds, plus move the remaining weight aft.
