    Default Rack and Pinion Replacement Help.

    Hello there...

    I'm about to replace the rack in my 93 with a brand new 10:1 sport ratio unit from LMR. My question is about the steering shaft itself.

    Would it be easier to undo the shaft at the firewall bolt and pull it all out as a complete unit?, does the rag joint even fit through the K-member?

    What is be best way to tackle this little project?.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Unbolt the shaft from the rack, it may take some effort to get the splines to release.

    10:1 rack? Never heard of such a thing, and I don't see it listed on LMR's website. Got a link?

    Would also remove it from the rack

    Ahhh! I saw that one, but on the Steering Parts page it's just listed as "Power Steering Rack (79-93)", so I assumed it was a stock replacement and didn't bother to click the link.

    I'll definitely be interested to hear some feedback once you've gotten it installed and had a chance to get some time behind the wheel. 10:1 is a really quick rack!

    Alright then.. now, if I could only build up the motivation to start.

    Thank y'all for the input. I'll post the results later.

    I'm interested in this as well. My '84 Thunderbird needs a complete front suspension update and I'm considering upgrading to a quicker ratio steering rack as part of the project.
