    Replaced the steering rack

    My van failed inspection recently for a leaking rack plus another item. I ordered a rack from Detroitaxle on Ebay, it was $140 shipped with a return label for the old one. The toughest thing was wiggling the old unit out. I had to drop the driver's side cradle down about 5 inches. Loosening the rear motor mount also helps seeing the rack actually goes through the mount. In hindsight it may have come out easier if I loosened that mount first, you can't turn the rack sideways because a pipe hits the mount. All in all not a terrible job and now my car is stickered and legal. Will the rack last a long time? Who knows but I only want the van to last a bit longer. I actually found a good deal on an 07 that I may jump at.

    Sounds like a good deal for a new rack.

    True enough, Friday morning and a chunk of Saturday. I did also replace the LCA's and tie rod ends while in there. The alignment seems pretty close, it tracks straight and the wheel is almost perfect. Pro alignment on Wednesday.
