I haven't been able to find any companies making steering angle related performance parts that fit crown Victorias. Mine is a 2009 p71 and I don't think grinding down factory parts sounds very safe. Is there is a safe way to do that or a manufacturer of high clearance steering parts for crown vics are there or am I just out of luck in that section of my build?

Steering angle? You mean like stance or camber?

No sorry I'm talking about actual wheel angle as in what affects your turn radius and steering sensitivity. Mainly for drifting

Not a lot of people drifting Crown Vics, so it's likely you'll have to get good at fabrication.

Lol yeah I figured. I just want it to have good capability to drift on the side with more of an emphasis on track and drag. Already getting into fabrication so I should be able to mod factory steering parts sometime in the future. Thanks for your time

I used to work for a drift school and we were using vic .There isnt much you can do about it as is. The steering angle is pretty decent but the cleareance betewen the frame and tire is the issue.

Thats cool I've seen a few of their vids with the vics in the snow. And that's unfortunate about the frame clearance. What about removing the rack limiters being at least worth a couple more degrees of angle? Or would that even run into clearance issues do you think?
