Looks like Cardone is manufacturing new steering racks, so that might be worth looking into. But yes, the reman'd ones are a crapshoot. I put a Cardone reman unit in my '65 GR350, and it immediately started squeaking. I swear, they only put boots and seals on it and gave it a paint job and did nothing else. At least with new parts, they wouldn't come pre-worn out.
I've read some reviews on Summit that the quality of AGR racks aren't that great either Maybe it's just a batch of improperly assembled racks?
Are there any actual good steering racks out there?
