  • Rebuildable 1986 steering rack

    While I'm waiting on a reply back from TurnOne on the status of my rack rebuild, I figured I'd at least ask if anyone has a rebuildable rack assembly they're willing to sell? There are a couple of parts on ours that are pitted beyond use, and while they're checking with another source, I figured I'd check here.

    Failing that, anyone know if the rack shaft is the same between SVO-specific and non-SVO racks? Thanks!

    Gene - I'll check with my buddy and see if he has any racks. The steering shaft is the same. Mike

      Thanks, Mike. Just to be certain, I'm not talking about the steering shaft that connects the steering column to the rack, but the rack shaft that lays inside the rack housing and moves left-to-right to move the tie rods. Thank you.

        Oh. That I do not know. He is checking, he has parts up in WI too. Might be a while.

          Awesome. Thank you. I have plenty of other projects to keep me busy in the mean time. ;-)

              Yeah, the AGR rack I installed was notably lighter-effort than OEM, even though it was their 'high-effort' rack. Of course, now it's leaking, and I suspect the reason it's leaking is because the rack shaft was polished down too far to properly seal. Kind of sucks, as I was hoping to be done enough to take the car back to my paint guy for the final body touch ups before applying the side molding.
