Steering Rack rebuild - spacers

PostPost by: SENC » Sun Dec 15, 2019 3:08 pm

Had an old rack I've been meaning to disassemble either for parts or for rebuild. Was in better than expected shape so have cleaned up and painted the bits. Ultimately will replace the tie rods as one is buggered from someone's application of a mole wrench, but otherwise no signs of damage or even much wear. Based on the spacers, the rack is from an earlier Elan and I have an S4. Are spacers available, or is it simplest to have some machined?

For the moment, it will go get greased up and reassembled to be stored until needed.
