Rack and Pinion Steering - Grab it while you can.

Hi all,

I few months back I converted my steering to a dual steering box but the old/original rack and pinion steering is still in fair condition..... Does anyone need it?.... I just need to find it a good 26M home for it :D

It would be hard for me to post it so this would be great for anyone passing the NSW Central Coast.
Drop me a PM if you're interested.

All the best.

Is it the same as the X steering do you know?

From what I've read on this forum I think the rack is the same but the :macm: cable is shorter than the :macx:

Hmmm, interesting, let me do some research, where on central coast are you exactly and did it have much free play before you replaced it?

What are you asking for it?
