There seems to be a lot of choices when it comes to getting a replacement rack and pinnion.... Just doing a nice driver and weekend show car. Don't want to modify much. So any suggestions for a simple replacement? Seems prices range from $250 to $350 for the same thing...i assume the new ones come from the same place in China.
The TRW design will have a more direct ratio. With servo assistance you get a very, very good feel of the steering. Very sportive with the smaller aftermarket steering wheel I'm running too. Beside it is much lighter because it is a more narrow design and with aluminum housing.I see the 16 on center part for the OEM and he 15.5 on center for the TRW. Is there a difference in operation?
Alright-I FINALLY broke down and bought the new wheels and tires, well rear tires as of right now. I don't have the fronts yet, no one has the size in stock (165/80-15's on 15x4's), so they will have to wait until next weekend. But, I have the rears- 15x8 with 265/50-15's. I have to say I love it!! Anyways, since there are only a few pics with this size, I thought I would post the few I took of mine earlier today. Sorry for the relatively crappy quality-I took them with my phone. If anyone is interested, I can take a few more with my actual camera.
The 3M tape held on side strips on my repainted Cougar for years and was still a PITA when I wanted to change the color. It held the rear window plastic Wingdings on my wife’s Neon. The foam has some flex, but it is tough.They move around alot with the changes in temp. Expansion/Contraction. I doubt the tape could hold them.
