friends,

i have problem with my right tie rod connector atau inner rod (not remember the name) as per picture. that already kong i thing. its loose 1/4 inch when i goyang. as i see tie rod and inner rod for superstrut different with macpherson. inner rod for m/p longer than superstrut and tie rod for m/p shorter than superstrut.

1. if i change all inner rod and tie rod macpherson to superstrut rack is it possible?

2. anybody have this problem before?

3. is it can interchange with macpherson inner rod and tie rod?

to find it not easy like what u said bro. thats why i am asking about that. even if i found that steering rack set the condition not % good. now i am not using superstrut set, only steering rack from superstrut i used. now i am planning to change the inner rod and tie rod both side. i means macpherson inner and tie rod because cannot find superstrut one at sparepart shop. but i dont know its can fix or not that thing to superstrut rack. anyone have tried to change it before?

huh? not using SS? More easy la... you can take from AE92, 101 and 111 steering rack ma...
If not mistaken, from local AE101 or even AE111 also can be use...

Anyway, may i know SS steering rack and non-SS steering rack got any different? Because previously was using non-ss steering rack..., then faulty and change to used SS steering rack without mod and used at my SE le... Even i go to measurement also no different...:hmmmm::hmmmm::hmmmm:

SS has its own steering rack? I last time bought one BT's from chop shop and it just "plug n play" le. Perhaps i was lucky.
If yours loosen when goyang ( i assume you are referring to steering and not other tingy :biggrin:), it should be your steering column giving you troubles not the steering rack. My car had similar problem and I bet with my mech (steering rack or column). He loose hehe...

i think u can use normal bold head & tie rod end from ae92, ae101, ae111 to joint ss steering rack. because i use 3 years for ss steering rack with normal bold head & tie rod end and no modification need to do. just pnp.
