This topic comes up just about every week. Do a search. I think this is the last thread dealing with it here, Anyone tried putting a 4th gen rack and pinion steering system on a 3rd gen?
. Actually that thread was unearthed from the dead recently. It was four years old! I would PM some members that have done the conversion.
I happen to like recircualting ball setups as many rack-and-pinion steering systems have to much power assist and not enough road feel.
