I don't know if that's a word, but it makes sense. I have a 1998 Taurus wagon that unfortunately had a meeting with a median the other day and now needs the rack & pinion changed along with a fender and a few other things. I know 96-99 was the same body, but do they have the same suspension parts? I was thinking about buying a parts car from the towing auction since there always seems to be 4 or 5. And just want to be sure which years are compatible. Thanks!
