Its my fault, I bought a salvage 1995 model rack.
Rack one was the stocker, didn't leak but was loose to the point of danger
Rack two was an AGR unit bought new from Summit. Installed and was immediately loose, and developed leak in 3 months time. AGR refused warrantee service as install was after warrantee period (90 days from purchase).
Rack three was a Flaming River sportsman unit. Had all sorts of fitment troubles, made custom lines, and I just didn't have the FR shaft that's 1.5" longer than the MM unit. Sold the rack
Rack 4 was a 1995 Rack purchased locally to get the car back on the road.
Now its just leaking at both ends, refilled and bled system, but the rack is jumpy and keeps getting air in. For the $50 I paid for it, not even going to bother fixing.
So looking at my options again, and in a mood to do it right and be done with this nightmare, as I could have a rack made of gold and platinum by now.
Buy a car parts store rack. Will have a warrantee, but how many random v6/early SN95GT racks will I have to go through before I get a unit that doesn't play or feel completely numb?
The new flaming river sportsman rack:
Sold as a kit, attractive line setup (I like how they used flexible lines in this new design). Have all the right parts to do the job the first time. $1000 out of my butt however.
Hunt for a used rack again. Same problems as #1. I don't have faith in this.
Try AGR again, maybe go direct through them versus summit racing. I'm still not impressed with their service, and I hear nothing but leaky racks. I did like how firm my rack was, just hated how it was loose in the center like the stocker it replaced (I've made sure time and time again it wasn't anything else like bumpsteer kit wear or shafts or columns or loose steering wheel, hubs, etc causing play).
What do you guys think? I've been on the verge of giving up on this car, but lately, I need a hobby, so I'm going to get these projects rocked out and enjoy this car before I get any older or have to become any more responsible.
