    Does anyone know for sure if the Raptor steering rack is special compared to other F150 models?

    I ask as I killed my steering rack and I don't have time to fight ford as usual. RockAuto list 3 options. 2 are Raptor SVC specific and 1 is SVT package.

    I can't find anything concrete on the interweb with search terms I have tried.

    Turning to the community to see if we can document a thread with all steering rack information and links to DIY's and so on. The definitive Raptor steering thread as it where for Gen 1

    Reference notes to start

    Scab steering rack is slower than the screw so if you want a faster rack in the Scab buy a 145 wheel base rack.

    Part numbers (RockAuto)
    Scab = STG449 (raptor specific listed)
    Screw = STG450 (raptor specific listed)

    ??? STRV91RM - listed as "Reman; w/ SVT Package" - and is only 361 vs 760 ???

    Yeah ordered and replaced the rack in less than a hour. Easy to do just costly.

    Watch out for jumping trees.

    My steering has recently started making a horrific noise when turning center-left. No noise at all turn center-right. I've lubed all my heims and uniballs with dry teflon lube with no reduction in noise. Would a bad rack make this noise? Poor video, but loud and clear audio! https://vimeo.com/194284836

    I have a Raptor Scab and the long slow turning radius really annoys me.
    I am damn near ready to spend the coin on a Screw steering rack.
    Does the Screw steering rack offer a significant feel on a Scab?

    Which one did you end up getting?
    I am debating about getting CL3Z-3V504-BRM to carry as a spare when off-roading if that is a viable option for a SCREW.

    Yup - bad rack. @Madcowranch would be able to verify, but his was doing this in Colorado shortly before his rack went to shit.....
