Default For those that have had both a STi and WRX-difference in steering racks?

I was curious for those that have driven both how much of a difference there was between the 16.5:1 and 15:1 racks, my gut instinct says not much, but would like to hear form folks who have driven both.

Thanks in advance.

I got to drive an EVO and 9-2x this weekend (9-2x has STi rack)

Compared to my 02 WRX the EVO is go-kart esque but to high mantience for daily driving IMHO.

The STi rack was a nice compromise . Nice fast responce good feedback but easier to drive fast for long periods of time.

conclusion I WANT THE STI rack.

Sounds like the 92x got a few things out of the jdm goody box

If there's a perceptable difference, I'll have to consider the 15:1 rack more carefully. I'll have to get a test drive under my belt- I did test drive an EVO a year ago or so and did very much like the 13:1 rack.

I have an '04 STi and my wife has an '03 WRX - both totally stock. I notice that the power steering seems to have more boost on the STi than the WRX more than I notice the difference in steering ratio - the cars are so dissimilar in so many ways that it is hard to compare a slight difference in steering ratio - you notice the suspension differences and of course, the power much more than the slightly different steering ratio.

For what Saab is charging for the Aero (2.0L turbo) it had better have some JDM or STi parts - you could buy an STi for only a few $$ more!

That's true, enough differences it might be tough to sort out. My best bet would be to take a spin in the 92X and compare it to my 04 wagon.
