GC8 Quick Turn Steering Rack in a JDM BF5

Post by JimBos Legacy » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:02 pm

Any body know if this is swappable? I have a power steering leak and I’m having to drop the steering rack anyways to fix the seals, so I though I might as well upgrade it if I can. I was looking into the 13:1 ratio steering rack the the GC8 since I can’t find any steering racks for my car. Appreciate the help!

I'm sure it can be made to work, but I'm not sure if it's a direct bolt in or not.

Damn, I was hoping someone had done it before. If you ever come across a rhd rack let me know.

The LHD GC8 rack swaps onto BC's (you reuse the BC's ball joint arms), so it seems likely the RHD ones would work.

Might just go for it and see if it works

Lhd to lhd works is what I meant. So rhd to rhd should also work

Nope I have not, still trying to find the rack again, really want to get this in because I’m tired of no power steering :/
