Steering rack bushing replacement

I finally got the bushings n from nissan $32 for both driver and passenger. Jus thought i'd make a lil write up

Tools needed
1/2'' driver 17mm (deep socket is easier)
1/2'' breaker bar


It's really simple two bolts to take off the clamps over the bushings.

Theres where the two bolts are theres a hole to access the front one.

After u get the clamps off both sides kinda push the rack up to get the bushing out but to be on the safe side try remember how the bushing was when u took it out



After u get both in bolt the top clamps back on and ur good to go

Heres what my old ones look like

NOTE: Make sure ur wheels are straight when u do this and prolly should get a lignment after shoots!!
