    Nathan,

    You can buy, just about everything to overhaul a steering rack except for the rack and pinion themselves. i.e. rack-eye bushes and the rack tensioning bushes and springs... Normally the racks only wear at the centre position. Unless of course they have been operated without being greased regularly and then the whole steering/gearing mechanism can be stuffed... Dead centre or just either side, is where the most force is applied between the pinion and rack.... From experience, do not try to mix and match racks and pinions. It is not that successful, due to the different wear patterns.

    An overhauled rack is quite light and free....


    If you need any advice or just want to talk it through, PM me.

    Cheers,

    Dano

    Thanks for the info Dano. My mechanic tells me the internal body of the rack is totally worn out and metal is eaten away, so need a good rack body. Best regards, Nathan.
