i agree with the rack just being an upgrade, not having power steering noise will be great but haven't started motor yet so don't know if the new pump is quite or not.
I really appreciate you counting, i have something to compare to now. Reread the instructions tonight and realized i wasn't doing the lock to lock count right, as you could probably tell, so I'll hit it tomorrow and see what happens. I doubt taking the time to install offset bushings would be worth the 3/32, that sounds very minuscule. How were you able to get it fine tune it one tooth at a time? mark it somehow or just be really slow and careful?
