    The tie rod are new and I changed the oil.
    Maybe I have damaged the rack when I remove the rusty steering U:

    I doubt it. That play is probably in the inner tie rods, there is plastic bushings inside that wear out. Try to craw under or get the car in the air and tug on the inner rods, if they move around that's no good.

    That is play/wear in the pinion shaft assembly....most likely the bearings. I'd suggest one of our rebuilt racks or our rebuild kit if you want to DIY. It has everything you need for a complete rack rebuild that will outlast both NOS and reproduction racks.

    Thanks for the advice Rob
    Could you please tell me:
    Is the price $395 for a complete rack?
    Is the price $229.95 for a rebuilt kit?
    Is there a core charge for one of them?
    Saw the price on your website: https://www.pjgrady.com/product/steeringrack/
    Thanks again for your answer.

    Yes to all three questions. The additional core charge of $250- for the complete rack is not applied unless we don't recieve the core back within 30 days of shipping out the rebuilt rack.

    All right, so if I can't send you back the old rack because of the expensive shipping, the total will be:
    $395 for the rack + $250 core = $645 + shipping
    I have to wait because it's a little bit expensive right now...

    Although expensive surely the return freight would be less than $250-.

    An alternative would be to buy an available core from someone on this forum or other Delorean venue that is stateside and have them ship it directly to us for a core. This has been done before and could be another option you might investigate for a cost savings.
