Steering shaft shortening

Recommended Posts

My tube chassis is almost complete, but I am at a small hiccup. Because I am going big tire - My lateral bar is almost perfectly mated up to the B pillar - and my tubs are flush there as well. So the main hoop and a few other bars are going to place me a little forward of full-rear stock seat location.... I will be using a Kirkey seat - but when we did a test fit - the steering wheel is super close.


Who has shortened their steering shaft, and what was the process of doing so? I am using the standard 280z dash as well.

I've moved your thread to the fabrication section of the forum.


The Z steering wheels are pretty close to begin with. You can run a flat face wheel to gain a couple inches. I'll leave shortening of the shaft to others to answer.
