[DML] Re: Rack & Pinion problems



The vendors do not sell parts for the racks except for maybe the
boots. They want to have the whole thing so they can rebuild it
properly. I don't think anyone can say driving on that rack now would
be safe knowing parts are crumbling out of it. Check the tie rod ends
too and figure on sending the rack out for rebuild or exchange. When
the rack comes back you will probably need an alignment to set the toe
and center the steering wheel.
