steering rack

I got a 90 coupe that the steering rack has play in. I'm looking at a flaming river, but can't make up my mind to go manual or stay power steering, I don't drive the car everyday, it's more like a weekend toy. What do you guys think on this?

Thanks, Jason

I have the flaming river manual rack with skinnies on my mustang as well. Turning is very easy.

I have a flaming river rack in my 84 svo. It steers pretty easy on the street even with 235/40/17's up front. Paralell parking in my driveway kind of sucks though. I had an 86 with a flaming river rack and it was a pain to steer, I don't know if its because it was full weight with 10 holes but it was a heck of a lot harder to steer then my svo.

I just installed mine and I think it's great. It's not that bad. The only thing you have to get used to doing is let the car start rolling before you try to turn the wheel.
