New rack and pinion install
Best way to keep a car running and cutting costs is doing it yourself.
yesterday started removing the rack and pinion, first make the steering wheel fixed in position, using jack stands and towers jacks, having hard time removing tie rods, will have to use some WD40 and some hammering, then transfer the tie rods to new rack. afterward get it aligned in a shop and voila.
all the job will cost me $210, doing it myself and well $10 for alignment shop.
did the same job on the 1992 Mustang LX coupe 5.0, since the equinox uses electric power steering its less messy with hidraulic fluid to deal with.
just takes time and patience, there will be certain things I will not be able to do, because of time and tools but this is within reach for now. will share more pics on the job
