When it comes to Steering Columns, Ididit Performance Won’t Steer You Wrong
By FSC Staff
On the subject of steering columns, whether its street cars, race cars, or even tow vehicles, it’s safe to say that no one has more to offer than Ididit Performance.
Based in Tecumseh, Mich., Ididit Performance, has been making high quality steering columns and related accessories for the hot rod and muscle car enthusiast for the past 30 years and continues to expand on that tradition.
Ididit emerged out of a small garage in 1986 and has since grown into one of the world’s leading aftermarket steering column manufacturers. Ididit manufactures top quality, American made steering columns for the automotive aftermarket, as well as steering systems for industrial, commercial and government vehicles. Ididit also produces specialty columns for a multitude of applications such as golf carts, ATV/UTV, tow vehicles and driving simulators.
For Ididit, the expansion into the performance market began several years ago with the addition of the Pro Fab and Pro Lite model columns. The Pro-Lite column is perfect for anything from street/strip use to road and touring high-performance applications, while the Pro Fab is a base model ideal for pure race/strip applications.  
Of particular interest to NMCA and NMRA racers is the Ididit Performance Drag Race/Road Race Pro-Fab Lightweight Steering Column, which comes equipped with an extended shaft that lets the installer trim to length and pair with an Ididit Performance quick-release steering hub and aftermarket steering wheel of their choosing, to tailor-fit the column to their needs.
Additional features of the Pro-Fab Lightweight Steering Column include precision laser-cut tubing & brackets for superior fit and finish, sealed upper ball bearing and Delrin lower bushing for smooth operation even after years of abuse, and ultra-light aluminum tubing and brackets.
According to Ididit Performance, the model weighs a scant 4.6 pounds and is a no-frills, retrofit column for drag racing and competition applications not utilizing turn signals, a tilt system, or any other luxuries that may increase complexity or weight. In other words, it's a perfect fit for many drag racing applications where performance and reliability are a must, and saving weight is an added benefit.  
Additional benefits include a fast and smooth engagement, push to connect without pulling the pull-ring and an audible click when properly seated. The Ididit Pro Fab Lightweight Steering column is also SFI certified and accepted for use by NMRA/NMCA and NHRA sanctions.
With a product line that extends well beyond Steering columns, Ididit Performance also offers a complete line of accessories that includes quick release hubs, starter buttons, dash mounts, wiring, shift linkage kits, knobs, levers, and shift mounts.
