Hi All,

Had the steering rack bush replaced on my coupe (manual TRW rack) about 4 years ago with a repro item.  Have just noticed after a long run today the same knocking noise through wheel.  Can seem to move rack up/down slightly when grabbing n/s control arm; some movement but less pronounced when doing similar with O/S control arm -   Am I on the right lines?

If it is the bush then is failure after just a few years and probably not much more than 7/8 K miles normal?

See that Betaboyz parts now shows a Polyurethane item as alternative?  Has anybody any experience of this as an alternative?

Finally, last time had local mechanic/garage that I know change bush as didn't fancy trying to do this job at home without access to lift.  Is this straightforward if I get car up on axle stands or is it not worth the faff?

All advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Andrew

Which bush do you mean? One of the ones between the rack and the securing pieces?

Hi

I think this is what you mean.

Mark states he has had these installed for some time now and all is well. I would have thought PU would be a good solution for this application, anyone else have any comments?
