Default Place to have steering rack bushing replaced...?

Is there a shop in NY that can install steering rack bushing? my car is having a "common" problem where even after alignment work done car doesn't drive straight.

Sport Compact magazine stated that steering rack bushing fixed the said problem above.

I think most people are doing it themselves. I'm planning on doing mine when I get some time. Maybe see if someone in your area wants to drop by and give you a hand.

Either noltec or whiteline steering rack bushings will just about eliminate the "memory steer" problem you speak of.

<--- had them installed by AZP over a year ago and they made a TREMENDOUS difference.

It sure would help if you could be more specific on where you are. Upstate NY is a pretty big place.
I realize that it's kool to use some fictitious place or be somewhat secretive but it makes it rather difficult to help people if we don't know where they are.

Sorry my reply is late...but I had them install my bushings when my car was there for it's 30k service. So the install costs was lumped into the service price.
