Hi all!

I just found out today that the steering rack in my 1986 L-series wagon is toast - excessive play to permit a wheel alignment they said - I'll check the wheel play tonight against the specs... It actually feels tighter to drive than my Brumby... oh oh!

Anyway, expecting the worst ;-), does anybody know about the evolution of steering racks in the old L-series wagons (and their predecessors)? The local wrecker has a couple of older EA-81 wrecks - is it possible to substitue one of the racks from these? Also, any tips on not picking a crap one?

The other solution is to hand over >A$500! Ouch! That's all the car itself is worth!

Cheers,
James :-)
