From what I've read, the sports bushes should have plain steel thrust washers - I assume one for each of the two lower bushes - plus packing washers, so it looks like there's one missing. If that's so, I'm in danger of damaging the mounting ears on the non-pinion side, by tightening the mounting bolt with insufficient washers to fill pack out the bush.
Can anyone confirm or deny?
Thanks in advance for any help.
For what it's worth, I didn't actually want to take the rack out. I started removing the RHS exhaust down pipe to fix a minor leak at the gasket, and in best tradition, when the workshop manual said "maneuver the down pipe clear", there wasn't enough space, so I thought I'd drop the rack.
I could have written your post re the rack bushes "missing parts" ?????
I have looked down to each end of the rack , before reading your post, and have the same feature. Also I had a feel to make sure I was not being stupid and there is a missing rubber end washer.
My steering is not bad but... I ordered some neoprene bushes anyway.
I've not gone underneath yet, but this can't be right !!!!!
Its as if the rubber pack washers have split and fallen out......or someones been here before ??
Did you find an answer ??
