Bushings can be replaced separately, try Moog afternarket parts for better quality replacements.

Location of the steering rack bushings on a 2001 grand am se


Steering rack and pinion is under the car, on the back side of the engine frame. There is only one bushing. On the passenger side. The drivers side is solid. No bushing. If it is sloppy. Frames break.

My rack and pinion is starting to go bad. Now it makes a popping sound when I turn sometimes. What causes that?


Unless the rack is moving side to side due to loose bolts or warn bushings it is almost impossible for it to make any type of noise at all,
if poping noises can be heard turning the wheel while the car is parked you have one of a few different problems,
1, worn ball joints
2, warn control arm bushings
3, worn tie rods
4, worn upper strut mount bearings

The rack and pinion can usually be rejuvenated by flushing the system and adding Lucas rack and pinion sealer, this seals it internally also making it work much better.

Power steering "pop"


On these vehicles, rack & pinion mount bushings and inner tie rod bushings basically wear away to a point sometimes they fall apart completely, dangerous to drive if thats the case. Easy fix for a trained technician.

I have uneven wear on my 2006 toyota tundra tires, the right tires are worn much more on the outer edge than the left. any thoughts?


You have a front suspension part that is worn and/or need the front end aligned. If problem is in the rear you may need a four wheel alignment. If it was low air pressure it would wear the inside and outside edges of the tires.
