My steering rack blew up today. It has been intermittently working since my transmission failed 8 months ago. Anyone who has information or can assist would be greatly appreciated. My truck is under warranty. The only way I will go dealer is if they can fix it in a reasonable amount of time without incurring more problems.

Thanks

After reading some of your other posts, I think you need to find a better dealer, the one you have been going to doesn't seem to take care of your needs. There is probably some warranty deal where to get the warrantied part, the dealer has to install it, IDK. Have you asked your dealer yet for the part? Sucks to hear about all of your problems. I know you are frustrated.

If it’s under warranty, find a new dealer to get it done. It’s a pricy part and the install is quite easy. Hopefully it’s available. Some of the racks are on national back order

A little late for me. But I encourage everyone out of warranty to check out Dorman part #601-900 EPS Rack. This is an upgraded unit (Aftermarket) that has taken Fords Idea and strengthened up the weak areas prone to failure. I have a complementary rack coming from Dorman for "Testing" purposes. The new rack comes with a programmer and allows for adjustment electronically...not just sport, regular and easy. 11111Some companies actually like to see if and what breaks and how to improve it. Not to say that Ford has not done the greatest job on this front, just another option for everyone (not here on the Forums) who told me that these are not problematic or inherently weak..
