I just replaced the rack on my 89 eldo... I only use GM delco parts in my cars... you can go to www.newgmparts.com
they have the best prices on GM parts .. they are a GM dealership in Hyannis, Mass. call them and they will give you a price.. or you can search it on their website
hope this helps

What give you the impression that your rack is no good? I'm wondering about mine lately. What are the tell tale signs?

I think the only diiference was between steering is magnasteer which was an option i think in 96 and became standard in 97 not sure tho im sure if you email the seller they can tell you of this can work with your 96 etc goodluck

I was told by a mechanic that i had a bad rack.I replaced my struts,bearing plates,and removed the sway bar,and i still have the clunking sound like many other owners have on there etc's.The mechanic said i have play in the rack,he showed me the clunking in the front end,the car was on the ground,he grabbed the front wheel,he was able to make it clunk by grabbing it at 9 and 3 on the wheel.It was not the tie rod ends he was hoping for,but he said it was the rack,yikesssssss.So i have to buy a rack now.

Hi,when i turn the wheel side to side,i get the clunking noise too.I can grab my tire and wobble it side to side and dupilcate the noise too.I am pretty sure i have the magnasteer and stablitrak,i have disabled the stabiltrak by using passive stuts.I can ride down a smooth road,no clunking,then the slightest bump i have th noise.

How many miles on the clock? What was the primary area the car was driven, for example city, rural, highway?
