Is an xjrs steering rack better than an xjs steering rack?
If so, why so?
I am led to believe you can swap them straight over, but i wont be doing that if there is no real difference /advantage.
I have also heard you can swap an old type pre face lift rack for a facelift one and these are better.
Anyone an expert here?
if you think better is a slightly faster turn rate , and a presumed better feel back through the steering wheel , cant see how as all the bushes will be the same, and even Jaguar advised to fit ' sports ' bushes to existing racks if refurbishing ,
so , better , if you want that sort of thing
extra work and expense are a definite, especially if your existing rack is fine ,
and ensure that ebay rack is a genuine ' sports ' version before you buy it , and it will need a full refurb before installing in the car, as you dont know what kind of nasties are in there from being stored.......
but, it is a straight swap over component wise, you will need a full fluid change, and a full 4 wheel alignment from a proper workshop after ,

I think after reading that i have slightly gone off the idea.
especially as my steering rack is working fine with no leaks etc.
I suppose i could perhaps fit my nice poly bushes to my existing rack, which said part is sat in my filing cabinet under unfitted.
That sounds like a more do-able and less stressful option.
I have enough to do still on the car without creating work for the fun of it, and also spending money for the sake of it to.
