Appleton Rack and Pinions

  In 1978 George Appleton founded the company Appleton Chassis.  After building chassis for many years for both dirt and asphalt he decided to build a rack and pinion that would meet his high standards.  He wanted to make the best possible rack and pinion but still keep the price down.  He sold more than expected and started to concentrate more on the rack and pinion assembly than the whole chassis.  Soon, he changed his business name to Appleton Rack and Pinion, Inc.  George would then bring his youngest son, Fred, into the business.  Fred later became the president of the company.  Today, Fred's oldest son Jayson is Vice President also.

    The basic rack and pinion design is still used today.  The all in one design makes it very compact, because the servo and cylinder are connected to the main unit.  With this set up there is no need to run extra hoses and mount the servo and cylinder.  Most all major rack and pinion manufacturers have began to use this configuration because of its neatness.  Appleton Rack & Pinion also uses a l 1/4" hardened rack shaft and pinion gear.  We offer 6 different ratios ranging from 1.8 to 3.9 inches per turn.  Also, we offer 5 different servo feels including double extra light, extra light, light, medium, and heavy.  The driver can customize the rack to their liking or to track conditions.  The rack housings we offer are super light cast aluminum or tougher billet aluminum.  If lighter is what you want to try, and aluminum shaft and cast housing would be great for you.  The total weight of this unit is 10pounds, which is 7 pounds lighter than the standard steel shafted unit.

    Also, we offer a filter tank cooler (FTC).  Not only does this unit hold and distribute power steering fluid it also filters and cools it.  The FTC will help prevent damage on your steering rack immensely.  We also offer synthetic power steering fluid and other products that you might we interested in.
