    Yes, you are correct about having to alter or modify certain components by installing rack and pinion steering. I personnally would just replace your gearbox with another like one, especially if you already have power steering. The only difference between rack and pinion steering and just power steering is the amount of turns you have to turn the steering wheel to make the wheels hit bump stop to bump stop. This can also be achieved by purchasing a power steering gearbox with a closer gear ratio than what you currently have. You wont have to modify anything as it is the exact same on the outside, just configured differently internal. This different ratio in the gearbox will allow you to turn the steering wheel less, but move the wheels on the ground more. Same thing that rack and pinion does! Only without the headache of modifing other parts on your ride. Oh yeah, dont forget the price difference too! :wink:
