This can be dangerous. I had to have mine (89 V6) fixed by getting the rack
replaced--cost close to 750. The rack had too much play and could not be
adjusted.

WHOA! Granted, I worked at a parts store and got my parts at cost, but a
R&P for an '85 Celica cost me $95; or $139.95 for anyone else! It was
remanufactured. I had a frienk at a Meineke put it in (I don't have a
lift, and I was going to be damned laying on my back on the ground) for
$140. Granted, I got a deal, but shop around! Also, have a mechanic check
the rack...mine was good, but we had a lot of defective returns on them.

Check CarQuest or NAPA.
