Mustang 2 rack new vs. used

Hi guys. I'm building a 39 Chevy coupe with a Mustang 2 IFS. I used a power rack on my last build with good results but this time I'm going with manual steering. My question, would you go with a junkyard rack or step up for a new part (approx $225). Your thoughts please. Thanks, Dave

Myself, I would go for a new one. I am all for saving money but with the amount we spend building a car I wouldn't think buying a used rack will make or break the budget. An original MII rack would have quite a few years on them now wouldn't they so who would know about the condition.

On the other hand a slightly used rack (from a buddy who built the car with manual steering and is now going power) would be worth pursuing.

Probably someone here way more knowledgable who could advise on rebuilding a used rack if necessary but again I would go new.

Don't skimp here, a new rack is too cheap to go with a used one.
