Steering Rack Bushings - Toyota Tacoma - w12978
Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings
When you turn your steering wheel, the force is transferred through the steering rack to your control arms and other steering components. Two of the main components on your steering rack are the teeth on the rack itself and the gear that rolls across them. Steering rack bushings are designed to protect these components from impacts and road grime. However, OE steering rack bushings are commonly made of rubber, a material that will eventually succumb to wear and contamination, leaving your steering rack exposed. Once this happens your vehicle's handling will become progressively clunkier and harder to control as the steering rack becomes damaged and packed with grime.
Whiteline offers steering rack bushings made of synthetic elastomer. This elastomer is much more durable than rubber, capable of easily resisting physical wear and road contamination. By installing a set of Whiteline's elastomer steering rack bushings, you're greatly increasing the longevity of your vehicle's steering system. Plus, Whiteline covers all of their steering rack bushings with a lifetime warranty handled in-house here at DST.

starstarstarstarstar" Does the job "
Installed this bushing kit on my 2004 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner TRD V6. The steering rack would shift left and right while turning the wheel roughly 3/4 inch due to the worn out OEM bushings. These bushings fit together perfectly, install was easy. Over all job took me about an hour and a half. I jacked the front end up leaving the tires on, removed the sway bar and removed all bolts/nuts securing the steering rack. After minor adjusting I was able to access both bushings that are "pressed in". I used a 1/2 inch drive extension and 3 lbs mini sledge to hammer the two bushings out. New bushings went in nice and easy after applying grease. Aligning all the holes took a few minutes but once I did everything went in as expected. The rack no longer budges while steering, feels a little stiff but will get alignment checked/adjusted.verified_user Verified Buyer - Joel T. Wasson - . Whiteline w12978 - 5 out of 5
