    New Steering Rack

    Just installed a new steering rack plus the steering column bushing. Wow, what a difference. You mean this is how it was supposed to drive? It feels like a new car and handles so much better. I'm sorry I went 4 years on the old rack.

    Night and day when I replaced mine. The inner rods were totally shot and the bushing was missing. What a difference indeed!

    Which one did you choose?
    A refurbished one or a new one from DMCH?

    Thanks, I guess it's the same from Houston.
    My steering wheel is moving a little bit when the car is stopped, maybe this new rack will solve my problem.

    Already changed this part.
    The steering wheel is just turning.
    I'll try to make a video someday to explain better.

    Hmm, well mine wasn't doing that. It was simply hard to turn, rattled (although I never realized it) and imprecise.

    That sure looks like excessive play in the rack. Could be the outer tie rod ends but ill bet its in the rack.
