Holy crap, Dude! This makes me almost glad that I'll most likely be dead before I'd have to replace mine! I read it just because I like to learn mechanical stuff but I'd hate to actually have to do that. Thank you for doing all that work to document this for all the guys here who will have to one day face doing this.

Haha it was an adventure for sure but now that we have the steps clearly outlined it shouldn't be too bad for others!

@Xtremluck Awesome. Thank you so much for this write up. I'm doing a steering rack replacement for my girlfriends 2nd gen Tacoma soon. While not 1:1 this will surely help and if anything the Tacoma looks to be a bit easier. Did you end up getting new outer tie rods while you were at it?

Good luck my friend! Yes, the steering rack assembly came with new inner and outer tie rods. So the steering feels as if the truck was brand new which I'm trying to get used to.



Agreed, on your second gen Taco probably being easier. Older gens have much more room to work with. I know the 4th gen 4runner from the same era was easier.
