I bought a new rack from O'Riley Auto Parts here in Houston and with a
liftime warantee. Works great. I reccommend using Mobil 1 Synthetic
ATF fluid when you change it. It is a much better fluid and if your
powersteering pump whines using the Mobil 1 ATF will make it run
whisper quiet. You might as well replace the tie rod ends while you
are there. Take your old rack off and take it up to the Autoparts
store for the core charge. Before you give it to them lay the new one
and your old one on the ground and mark with a marker where the tie
rod ends are positioned. This will get you in the ball park so once it
is installed you can drive it to a shop and get a front end alignment.
It will be off after you change the rack.
