    Steering rack guide ?

    Does anyone have a guide for steering racks

    Eg total width, width between pivot points, main body width, amount of throw, lhd-rhd, power - non power and front or rear mounting ?

    Feel that something like this must be out there and if its not maybe we should get one sorted

    If this happens, knowing where pinion is on the rack casing would be helpful.

    Not forgetting that getting wrong (personal experience) can be dangerous
