rack choice ?

on a rack , usually the steering shaft comes out at an angle so reversing would move the steering wheel to the center of the car, and probably have a lot of engine interference, need more U joints, As a side note When I worked at ford, a crate of mercury steering gears got installed into trucks, the castings were the same, The driver at the end of the line almost wiped out the seat cushion shop. He turned the steering wheel right and the truck went left. Also chrysler cars and trucks used the same castings with left and right gear sets, Probably time to start checking bone yards for another R & P
