Do NOT just get a Fox rack and toss it in. Unless you have experience designing suspension systems and setting bumpsteer, Ackermann, and packaging everything, you'll likely have a car that is worse than before. Your best bet is to get a ready-made kit. Total Control Products has the backing of Chris Alston's ChassisWorks, and they have lots of experience with suspension systems. A rack and pinion system has fewer points of movement than the factory recirculating ball system, and so it will wear less and maintain better steering feel throughout the life of the car. Not to mention, I feel that a rack and pinion system packages better than the recirculating ball system, especially with power steering.
