Plymouth Duster 1975, Quick Ratio Idler and Pitman Arm Kit by Hotchkis®. This kit contains a shorter replacement idler arm and pitman arm that upgrades your recirculating ball steering system from a stock 3.5 turns side-to-side to a quicker-responding 2.75. Easy, bolt-on upgrade brings steering response up to track-specification AAR and T/A Mopar models. Both arms feature forged, heat-treated housings and ball studs for added strength and durability. Components are finished in electrocoated paint for higher resistance to corrosion, abrasive wear, and oily contaminants.

There’s no feeling in a performance car quite like the driving enjoyment that tight, quick-ratio steering brings. Instead of steering wheel rotation that resembles a hamster running on a wheel, Hotchkis’s Quick Ratio Idler and Pitman Arm Kit lets you do change the direction of your ride faster and with far fewer turns from lock to lock. Components bolt on with no modifications required, so you’ll be able to hit the track and be ready to rumble in no time. Hotchkis believes high-performance parts are nothing without durability, and takes great care to ensure both arms are built to maintain their integrity over sustained, heavy-duty use. For example, forged, heat-treated housings and ball studs provide more strength than standard-spec components.
Electrocoating (Or E-coating) is a finishing process widely known by auto manufacturers to be the best way to apply paint. Hotchkis goes the extra mile and uses this process when painting Quick Ratio steering kit components. Upon submersion into the paint, a positive electrical charge is applied to the steel and an opposite negative charge is applied to the paint solution. A seamless bond between the steel and the paint is created, forming a uniform protective coating that resists flaking or cracking. Hotchkis proudly builds all components in the United States, and backs them with a 3-year warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.297.77

Founded in Santa Fe Springs, California in the late 1960s during the height of the original muscle car boom, Hotchkis Sport Suspension got its start building products that blessed GM, Mopar, and Ford performance cars with new abilities to corner and handle with stability at racetrack speeds. As the company’s reputation for building quality products grew, Hotchkis components soon found their way onto all kinds of vehicles that were not made to go fast in any way, shape, or form. It didn’t take long before station wagons, convertibles, and pickup trucks were wheeling around tracks all over southern California with the tenacity of sports cars. After decades of developing suspension-enhancing products that have led to victories in championship racing events, slalom track competitions, and street challenges, Hotchkis has refined and perfected their manufacturing techniques to become the internationally respected company they are today. In 2013, Hotchkis opened a second facility in North Carolina which allows them to perform R&D on multiple platforms simultaneously, fabricate products for a greater number of racing applications, and offer suspension installation services. CARiD is proud to offer the best values you’ll find on a full range of Hotchkis sport coil springs that lower your vehicle’s center of gravity to add resposiveness, tubular sway bars that optimize chassis balance, control, and stability, rear suspension packages that dramatically improve traction during launch and cornering, and much more.
