Need guidance on front steering components

Ive read the threads and there is so much back and forth going on so id like some refreshed content from yall, I know this topic has been beat to death. Id like comments from people who have gone through the LCA hassle.


I want to replace:
steering rack
LCA or LCA bushings


I am probably going to go with a rack doctor rack as the price of a Cardone reman and outer tie rods are $50 in difference and I get a lifetime warranty on the rack doctor rack.


The question is 1A auto LCA or poly energy suspension bushings on my OEM LCAs?

The rig steers hard right sometimes when Iím braking. I found with a wheel shimmy test that the right rear LCA bushing is shot. I also noticed a lot of flex in the rack on the right hand side where it bolts to the frame.

I'd go new OEM LCA. new SuperPro LCA or SuperPro LCA bushing kit if you want to do it yourself. Look up SuperPro they are out of Austrailia but have US rep Apache Off Road. Their bushings make the difference.

I'll probably go superpro myself. The steer right when braking is probably a seized caliper. I'd check that.

Caliper is fine, the front right LCA back bushing is rotted out and bends in towards the middle of the rig, I was able to turn the wheel right while having the left wheel not move at all.
