    No it's not connected to the tranny. I never rebuilt a rack, only replaced them

    ya just replace the rack. I replaced mine a few months back its not to hard really. Whats happening with yours i bet is the seals have gone bad. The problem with that is there is an inner seal and an outer seal and if you do it to one side chances are the other side is about to go, so you would have to do the other side ...so mise well put a new rack in.

    just recently bought firebird 1995 LT1 with 90000 miles which i trade with my ford explorer limited i bought for $1200 lol firebird had trany problem which i bought the trany for 450$ and with installation $700.
    few days ago when i was parking the car i saw lots of oil leaking out from the right side of sterring rack... so i was scared i thought sterring rack oil is to do with the trany.anyways what do you guys thing did i get the good deal?
