Default new rack and pinion

hey guys im in need of a new steering rack and i cant seem to find a replacement at a decent price.
i called up the dealership and thats always out of my price range...
i was also looking into the STi one, but i cant find anywhere for a decent price either.
i went to autozone and they sold the duralast ones for my car for about 280 with a 40 dollar core and lifetime warranty.

my question is, are the autozone duralast rack and pinions any good? i dont plan on tracking or racing my car, just need something reliable and to get the job done.

What is "too much for you" and why would you look for an "STI one" if you couldn't afford the correct one for your car?

Have you tried one of out Supporting Vendors? There are SEVERAL that sell OEM parts.

700 for a steering rack is too much for me.
and it was an idea to get an sti rack because of the better ratio. sorry dude it was just an idea...

and which vendors sell oem? i thought they only sold aftermarket parts

I bought mine from a salvage yard in NY for under $100 shipped. I saw the posting on eBay and I called the place to ask a question and they ended up just taking my order over the phone and I ended up paying less than the eBay price.

"Worth it" is all relative to each person. If it falls within your budget then do it.
