AGR Power Steering rack P/N 712591

I am switching over to power steering. I have this rack from AGR that is specifically setup for the Roadster. I am wondering how many are running this rack and if they needed to add Rack Extenders? My setup is a Mark 3 with SN95 front spindles and the manual rack from Factory Five.

Thanks Paul

Lots use it, you don't need rack extenders. You may want to get the Breeze solid offset rack bushings. Hope it doesn't leak.

Paul I believe that is the same rack I have. No rack extenders are needed. In fact I had to shorten the ends. I did have an issue with the rack you should be aware of. When I got mine I called and talked to someone (can't remember the name) and he told me I would be alright with my existing pump. Well after I got the rack installed and had driven it for 15 minutes the left side seal blew. I didn't know it till it started leaking from there to the floor. I called and they said it was my fault that the existing pump had too much pressure blah blah blah. I explained who I had talked to and well ok they would fix it and send it back, but they wanted my pump also. Got a call a few days later and was told that the pump had too much pressure and that was what was the problem. My reply was simple, if it had too much pressure then why didn't it blow out the cheap Autozone rack. Dead silence, then well the design of this rack moves lots of fluid and lots of fluid under that kind of pressure makes it worse. Yeah sure. Anyway, to make a longer story shorter, I bought their pump at a much reduced price and have not had any issues since. You will absolutely love the feel of their rack, not twitchy at all. The feels somewhere between power and manual, with great road feel.
