Question Rebuild Steering Rack?

Has anyone local done it themselves? I could use some help with this in the next few weeks, or could possibly throw some $ your way.

I'm in Silver Spring, MD.

You need special tools and its not easy. I have never done one myself. It was cheaper for me to buy a used one from a junkyard. I got mine for $75 from octagon auto but I think they dont exist anymore. I cant get in touch with them.

It's actually a Q-Rack in a stage rally car and I wasn't sure if I could replace the driver's side seal myself or if I had to send it off to them.

That depends on where the seal is installed. Some of the racks vary. One of the seals is usually installed from the inside, which means you have to dissassemble the whole rack to replace it. I think that is the drivers side seal.

Just took a quick look, and I'll confirm that Jake's correct here.

Jard. We could probably pull it off up at my place, but I'm thinking we'd have to track down the seal installer ST or fab a comparable setup. Piston has to come out to pull off what you're talking about doing, provided the QuickRack is the same as the factory setup. Parts are ~$40 for the seals you'd need for the piston.

1. Open it up.
2. Spray it with butter flavored Pam.
3. Close it up.

What's so hard about that?

I prefer the Pam canola oil spray, as it doesnt give the burning smell when heated up.
