Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings W11970
You're Losing Valuable Feedback from Your Lexus Steering Rack
Stock rubber bushings used for the steering rack are soft and prone to failure, allowing for movement in the rack itself. This movement takes away valuable feedback from the steering wheel to the driver that can be crucial to control and responsiveness of your vehicle, so it is vital that you replace these bushings with a better alternative.
The better Alternative
Our team at DST would like to introduce you to that alternative: Whiteline's Steering Rack Bushing, part number W11970. This kit comes complete with synthetic elastomer bushings for the rack and pinion with an outside diameter of 1.97 inches (50mm) on the steering rack housing.
Whiteline's W11970 is steering rack mount bushings are made of synthetic elastomer, so they far more durable than stock rubber. Not only are they more durable, but the synthetic elastomer is overall a much better material for suspension bushings than rubber. With a durometer (or hardness) of 85, these bushings balance the "daily driver" feel with the performance of a firmer bushing. Whiteline's synthetic elastomer technology helps increase performance while minimizing noise and vibrations.
These bushings not only replace soft factory bushings, but they eliminate excess play and deflection. The installation of this bushings kit results in greatly increased steering feel, precision, feedback, and response, giving you a bang for your buck upgrade. Installation requires the use of basic shop tools such as a lift and press. We recommend having the alignment inspected/adjusted after installation due to the possible removal of steering rack from the vehicle. If you have any other questions give our DST customer service folks a call.

Although I replaced all front end bushings with polys, the feeling in the steering is remarkable. Time will be the true test, but for now I am very pleased with the snappy response and crisp feel of the steering as compared to the original bushings.verified_user Verified Buyer - Thomas Adams toyotommy68 - .
