Michigan based steering column specialist ididit continues to expand its Pro-Fab lineup, now with a Pro-Fab column for the 1990-2005 Mazda Miatas.

“The new ididit Pro-Fab Miata column shaves an additional 16 pounds off an already-light vehicle, which provides an advantage on the track and an opportunity to install other aftermarket products that builders may have been leery about due to weight worries,” the company says.

The new steering column is designed for drag, autocross, road and off-road racing and weighs only 2.65 pounds.

New column weighs less than 3 pounds

“When paired with an ididit Performance Quick-Release Steering Hub and aftermarket lightweight steering wheel, the 4.05-pound combination offers a 16-pound weight savings over the 20-pound factory column,” the company adds.

“The Pro-Fab slides directly in place of the factory column and bolts to the OEM mounting points and steering shaft. It comes equipped with an extended shaft that allows the installer to trim the column to best fit the driver.”

Trever Cornwell of ididit adds that the Miata Pro-Fab is the lightest steering column the company has produced to date.

The column can be used while retaining factory keyed ignition switch, self-canceling turn signals and multifunction switch on the column, the company notes
