Steering column and drops designed for custom and racing car builds


Ididit has introduced two products designed to improve steering and reduce weight while maintaining street legality for custom vehicles in street performance, off-road, rock crawling and racing.

“The Pro-Lite Builder Column and Billet Column Drops are geared toward racers whose vehicles sometimes see street duty,” said the company based in Tecumseh, Michigan.

The steering column weighs just 6.1 pounds, has 5 inches of collapsibility and is equipped with self-canceling electric turn-signal switch and 4-way hazards. It has a 6-bolt ididit quick-release steering hub.

“And, even though it’s lightweight, the Pro-Lite column doesn’t skimp on safety — it comes equipped with a two-piece collapsible shaft,” the company adds.

“The secret to this column is that most of the steering shaft is a hardanodized aluminum top-shaft with a GM-style spline and turn signal switch,” said ididit’s Trever Cornwell. “A ball-bearing top bearing and Delrin bushing at the bottom of the column assure long life and smooth steering.” 

The company offers an optional upgrade for the column that includes a momentary switch on the turn signal stalk. This upgrade can be used for horn, nitrous purge, trans brake, or high beams/flash to pass. 

Billet Column Drops are available in 3-, 5.5- and 8-inch lengths. The company said the Builder Column “is particularly suited for drag race, autocross, road course and off-road applications, as well as tube-chassis vehicles.”
