Rack & pinion replacing tips, update

You have to LOVE refurbished parts! My new rack is leaking!! CRAP. Rock auto is shipping me another one under warranty. Dammit. This install should go alot faster since I know how to attack it.

I feel your pain. I'm on my third rebuilt NAPA rack on my 87 and the second Advance Auto rack on the 97, but they have all lasted a few years. Didn't leak right away.
BTW I'm still trying to understand how the rack could be totally different and still fit.

I don't want to say much so as not to jinx the rack I replaced on my 87 Mustang a couple years ago. Got that from Rock as well, and so far so good.

As I read it, that reference was about the hose, not the rack.
Perhaps I'll be corrected.

The big difference was the threaded ends, instead of 3-4 inches of threads it had 6-8 inches and instructions for GM cars installation
