Not sure if I'm using the right term by steering linkage, but I need some help on how to fix it. My 90 Legacy Sedan was involved in a hit and run while it was parked on the street. Looks to me that the whole rack needs to be replaced. If any of you have an idea on how I could fix it that would be wonderful. Here's a picture....

From the pic , it looks like all you need is an inner & outer tie rod end. Both of these are replaceable parts . You will also need an align after these repairs . Just my observation from 1 pic though . 0]

Isn't that the end of the drive axle coming down from the top of the pic?

No that's the steering linkage.

It looks like the swaybar drop link is busted too.

I don't think you'll need a new steering rack, but like scoobtech said you'll need the tierod and anything associated with it

Thanks guys. I'll stop in the junk yard today and see what I can find. I've never taken the rack apart before, so this should be a fun project. hehe :lol:
