very cool man, one question, does your steering shaft have any "slip" in it? like as in when the axle goes up and down does the steering shaft have a way to lenghthen and shorten ? like a drive shaft in a car has a slip shaft so that it can change lengths as the suspension cycles, i think your steering shaft will need to be able to do the same thing or it will be pulling hard on your mounts, ujoints and rack and Id hate to see you tear up your nice new steering rack

Thanks CC! Yeah I have a slider shaft right off the back of the rack pinion shaft:



It's part of an automotive steering shaft outta something or other, haha. Seems to work well so far!

Okay then Mighty. Hahaha. But yeah I guess you could say mission accomplished, that is if the whole setup doesn't self destruct of course. Haha.

Mighty?  That was all Carl!  LOL

I figured that one wouldn't quite compute, haha. I was making a joke because it's usually you who posts all the funny pictures and gifs. I guess that joke was a long shot, hahaha.

Nothing new with the ol' GT lately, just been doing a lot of off-roading with 'er and loving the new steering, haha.







Haven't had anything go wrong with the rack setup, and I've been putting it through it's paces for sure, so hopefully that means it's all sturdy enough, haha. Think I'll maybe get some bumpstops rigged up for the axle next.
