    Power steering rack

    For anyone that has the FFR power steering rack, the instructions say to slide the metal spacer and bushing into the mounting holes of the rack. Mine came with bushings and metal sleeves already installed. Do I try and remove the existing to install the supplied parts or install as is? I have test fitted the bolts and they go in snug so it would seem that I can install as is.

    Yep, what Paul said. I have some pictures in post #55 of my build thread of when I was stuck on the same thing and these guys helped me out. Check them out if you need more detail.

    And if you want to spend some money, Breeze has solid mount bushings that lowers the rack and reduce bump steer. I purchased a pair at the recommendation of the build school and is mounts the rack solid to the frame. we'll see how much it helps.
