Rack and Pinion Steering Replacement


Recommended Posts

Hi all. The steering in my 1997 Malibu Response (Black Scorpion Eng.) has become very stiff and I think it's time to replace the cable. While I was at it, I thought I'd replace the rotary steering system with a rack and pinion one. Just trying to figure out what I need. I found this and this on bakesonline.com, and then I found this on amazon.com, which looks to be the same stuff but a lot cheaper. Any insight as to what exactly I need? There are no Malibu dealers or inboard marine shops close to me unfortunately so I'll have to order the parts online. Also, I'm assuming I can figure out the length of the cable when I pull the old one, but if someone knows exactly what length I need let me know.

Thanks for the help!
