To compliment their professional shop Power Steering Service, Justice Brothers has released their at home Power Steering Conditioner & Treatment for the do-it-yourselfer! This proprietary formula is much more that just an additive, it will prolong the life of your expensive power steering pump by reducing internal heat, lubricating internal seals and preventing component wear. It also helps to prevent leaks at the pump shaft seal. This 4-ounce (118ml) bottle added to your power steering fluid is pro-active protection against pump damage or failure.

The fluid inside your steering pump and steering box is always moving, creating internal heat that kills seals, bearing, hoses, and the fluid itself. Justice Brothers Power Steering Conditioner & Treatment protects against extreme heat and fluid oxidation, reduces pump squeal, and is compatible with all factory power steering fluids, including that used by Honda. For optimum power steering pump life and performance, add a bottle of Power Steering Conditioner & Treatment to your pump.

ProStyle Billet Shifter Sticks

Twist Machine, the New York manufacturer who introduced paddle shifters to the muscle car and hot rod industry four years ago, has designed two new ProStyle adjustable reach billet shifter sticks.  Designed for muscle cars and hot rods that have been converted to modern, internal rail manual transmissions, these new shifter levers compensate for ergonomic issues caused by relocating the shifter from the original side mount position (e.g. Muncie) to the top of the transmission (e.g. Tremec T-56). 

CNC-machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, ProStyle adjustable shifter sticks are available in 8-inch straight shank or 10-inch 25-degree bent shank (as shown). Reach is adjusted by way of three interchangeable inserts for up to seven mounting positions.  All kits are provided with mounting hardware: 3/8”, 8mm, and 10mm socket head cap bolts to complete the installation.

These new ProStyle levers fit all factory and aftermarket stub-style manual shifters with .875”-.900” bolt spacing.  Aftermarket transmissions include all internal-rail Tremec T5, T56, TKO500, and TKO600 and Richmond.

The ProStyle brand name identifies a range of billet aluminum aftermarket accessories for Camaros and other muscle cars.  Its styling theme, known as ball-milled and slotted, brings a coordinated styling to other accessories such as core support bars (engine bay reinforcing: fender to front panel), cowl induction trim plates, and more.
