Default manual steering rack

i replaced the rack in my '92 because i was just certain that it was bad but it turned out to be a ball joint. anyway, the boots on it were torn so i'm taking the inner tie rods off and selling it with no tie rods. $45 + shipping. i'll take pictures this weekend.

the only other thing about it is that i cranked the adjuster on the rack down before i took it out to see if that would fix it; it didn't, so i took it out promptly. therefore, it's still over-tightened a little, so you'll just have to loosen it back up when you put it in. rack came out of the car at 185k, but like i said, it turned out to be just fine. i should NOT have replaced it.

LOL, a manual rack without tie rods is a $20 shipping bill. Pony up if you are interested in a manual rack. It's not like they pop up every day.

OP, damn good price on a manual rack.

yeah, it's only about 18-22 inches long without any rods. would not be expensive to ship.

lol looking to be about $65 after shipping roughly. that's like two tanks of gas! if i had realized there would be so much interest i would have asked more. i got mine with new boots for $75 so it seemed to be a fair price

just decided, shipping is a flat $25. might not be that much but i'll get a tracking number with it. i've ended up short a few bucks every time i've shipped a part lately, so $70 shipped for this rack.

also, i would take a trade for this. i need headlight assemblies (less the motors), almost any suspension bushings, front bumper cover (if you look at shipping on the cover, say $100 through greyhound, subtract the $25 i'd spend on shipping and you really only pay $75 for the rack this way. i'd throw a little extra on to make a front cover happen), and whatever else good you might have. throw it out there. i would honestly rather trade.
