Default How To: Install a Steering Rack

I installed my Q-Rack quicker steering rack this past weekend and I thought I would make an install guide for anyone else who want to do the same.

It is a fairly straight forward job, which would take a pro 4 or 5 hours. It ended up taking me 9 hours due to 4 trips to the auto store for parts. I apologize for not taking pictures. You'll have to just imagine what things look like.

Let me just preface this with a warning. You are about to work on a critical part of your car. If you do this incorrectly and lose steering at speed it is your own fault. I take no responsibility for it, or the contents of this install guide. If you do not have the necessary tools or knowhow, please pay someone knowledgeable to do this for you.

I'd like to thank Snorky for helping me do this. Thanks to UkNuck for the picts.

Tools Needed:
Jack & Two Jack Stands
Assorted sockets, 8mm - 17mm & long extensions
Needle Nose Pliers
Flare wrenches
Crow's foot socket wrenches
Ball join puller or hammer/sledge
1 qt Dexron III ATF fluid
Basin to catch old fluid
PB Blaster
2x 2.5" worm screw hose clamps
Large adjustable wrench (≥32mm)
