Just a quick one here.
My steering rack is a gonner. But is has good tierod ends and rack ends.
I have a spare steering rack in good condition with worn rack and tie rod ends. So I was gonna just swap the good onto the good.straight forward enough.
Just wondering if ill keep my allignment.

If you fiddle with the rack, you will need an alignment done.

If you measure it all up and mark it correctly during assembly, you'll find that your diy job will be pretty much spot on with a possibility of only minor adjustments required to your wheel allignment.
