Prothane Steering Rack Bushings

Your steering rack is the portion of your steering system that takes your actual input, the turning of the steering wheel, and makes the vehicle react. It does this through two main components: the teeth on the rack itself, and a gear that rolls over them. Steering rack bushings are designed to protect these components from impacts and grime. However, your OE steering rack bushings are most likely made of rubber, and while rubber does a decent job of reflecting impacts, it doesn't hold up to road contaminants.

Prothane crafts each of their steering rack bushings with polyurethane, a material substantially more dependable than rubber. Capable of easily fending off both physical impacts and chemical contamination, these polyurethane bushings are sure to increase your steering rack's dependability and longevity. Plus, Prothane covers all of their steering rack bushings with a lifetime warranty handled in-house here at DST.

5 out of 5 based on 1 user reviews. Write a Review

I've used these on two different 1978 280Zs. They firm up the steering very much, and I would strongly recommend pairing them with a polyurethane steering puck. The play in the stock rubber bushings is greatly reduced, which gives a much better response and road feel. The shape of the bushings make them somewhat hard to install with the rack still in the car. It is possible to loosen the two bolts that hold the top bracket of the rack from underneath the car, which is what I did. Estimated install time is about 30 minutes. - Mat [FlatBlack]
5 out of 5 - Works well, installation was a bit of a pain.
