Hi all. Just wondering if there is any benefit in fitting the steering rack (LX) before I get the front springs installed. The reason I ask is that I would rather keep it off whilst the k frame goes to the suspension shop, but the flip side is, will it be any harder to mount it once the springs are in. Even with a practice run I am finding it a bit difficult already, one out, to hold the bolt in place inside the k frame whilst holding the steering rack, trying to get the bushes located and then get a nut on it. Busier than a one armed wallpaper hanger with an itch LOL.
As a second question, when fitting the steering arms back on, should I put a split washer behind the bolt head that screws into the arm, or will it potentially foul something down the track. I don't believe there was a washer originally on that bolt.
Thanks in advance. Cheers Ron
