I replaced my with the 2015+ rack due to a leaking rack on my GR. Is worth it. Also installed the Super Pro steering bushings and Cusco brace. No extra NVH

Garbage, or get it rebuilt for the same price as a new one.

Just curious, I’m being quoted 540 for install.
What was your quote from your dealer?

This seems to be a direct bolt on mechanically.
But any other issues involved like sensors, steering angle, etc?

Someone didn’t read the thread.

No, it doesn’t just “seem”, it IS a direct bolt on mechanically and electronically.

when i asked for a quote from the mechanic, he said the same thing about sensors and steering angle and made myself doubt the install.

I DIYed it anyway and been running fine for 5k with no issues mechanically and electronically.

I’m going on 4 years with no issues.

I can count on one hand the people who had issues. They either had a bad sensor before the swap and didn’t know, or they broke something while doing a DIY, or they didn’t do an alignment, or they did the alignment but the SAS wasn’t reset during the alignment.

Read through about halfway. Good to know that there are no long term effects. The SAS reset, is that something that I need to request when getting an alignment?
