Is it Possible to Put Power Steering On My Truck

Hello , I have a 1959 Ford F100 4WD Truck , and i want to put power steering on it. I've done hours of research and have called many businesses asking what product may fit. they all do not know because it's 4WD.i want to know if it may be possible or anyone else has put power steering on their 4WD truck.

Did you try Classic Performance Products (CPP)? They might be worth a call. They have a power steering kit that fits a 2WD Fridge. I am guessing, but the only issue would probably be the drag link fitment.

I had called them and asked about what would work, they said they are not sure and have never put it on a 59 4WD and that they really donít know. I donít think there are many Factory 4WD 59ís made, it seems to be rare. Luckily for me all fords records from that year burned in a fire, so I guess Iíll never know.

I have the CPP box on my 60 F250 4x4 with 35" tires & so far it's working fine.

I'm running a 400 with a C6. Hadn't thought about clearance issues with the slave cylinder...

Had to do custom motor mounts, cut out the factory rear engine/trans crossmember, and fab a new transmission crossmember. My C6 has the "short" tailhousing, so I was able to use my factory divorced T-case by having a new shorter intermediate driveshaft made.
