OK so I was told about a week ago I need a new steering rack and I found it online way cheaper than the cost of taking it in (obviously) but my question is, how difficult is the process? Is there a how-to anywhere or some sort of guide? Yes, I searched and found nothing but people having the same issue or similar issues. Any help appreciated.

Never done it on this car but have in the past. Not a lot of fun but you should be able to do it in five hours if you know even a decent amount about cars.

Yea... I've had this car for about 5 years and saved lots of money fixing it myself, just wanted to see if there was anything not so obvious I needed to know before giving it a go.

It was straight forward for me but that was an 86 Daytona. There is a 26 year technological gap between there!!

according to guys on here you can get new ones cheap on ebay. I dont think used is a horrible option depending on cost.

Unless you can find a killer deal on used it will be better to go new. The cost difference wont be worth the miles that are already on the used one.
