Have a sloppy steering wheel? Fix that annoying steering wheel play and get back your awesome steering wheel feel by rebuilding your steering rack yourself.

It's easy and you can do it with some very basic tools.
Watch the video to see how it's done and how to replace the steering rack rubber boots, how to unstake and stake claw washers, how to replace the steering rack bushings with polyurethane ones and how to install new inner tie rod ends and outer tie rod ends.

I also show you how to remove the steering rack from your car and how to restore it by removing the rust with a wire wheel and repainting the steering rack.

      I want to refurbish the steering rack on a 2005 sequoia. Can you give me some tips? Or even better if you could do a seal kit on one of those that would be AWESOME. Thanks anyway for the effort and god bless.

      A full rebuild would replace all seals and o-rings. A little disappointed. Also put what car your are working on, not all racks are the same.

      Thanks for this very good and detailed review. Can this be done on most cars? I have a 2013 ford figo that i wanna change the steering reck on but its too expensive. Is it possible to just do parts replacement only?

      @Solani Manamela Exactly. Mine is manual and for older cars, you can't really diy something made in 2013 that easily

      It can be done on any car. But yours is power steering and that's a bit mire difficult

      Before I saw this video. I honestly just took the rack end but didn’t count the amount of turns it took. I just took em right off 😓. Nd now I need advice on how do I put it back on precisely. On a 1996 Hyundai Accent

      once my oil regulator( I'm not a mechanic, something like an oil regulator) blew and the result was the steering became loose. The mechanic at the time after fixing the oil issue told me not to worry about the steering, it's not going to come apart. just oil on some bushings. Now in your video, I see the steering rack is held onto the car by some bushings. I wonder if those were the bushings he was referring too? 95 sc400 lexus. Your comment?

      Are you sure its ur steering rack? Could be ur strut mounts. But if ur somehow certain that it's coming from ur power steering rack, then I guess ur bushings?

      This is for the rack and pinion type.. If a recirculating ball type i think it's a little bit different..

      So you’re basically just replacing the inner and outer tie rods 😑 you don’t have to remove the whole rack unless you just want to paint it like you did. Anyways, good video.

      That rack and pinion is simple to rebuild,no port holes,because fluid doesn't run through it.
      Hydraulic rack and pinion has lot more seals,a whole other ball game!
