Exracer, how do you like the Wicked rack?

I really like it . I have the 1.7 to 1 ratio and with the Hess electric booster for the power steering motor it’s a little harder to steer then stock but not bad . I love the fact that the steering rack tightens up the turning radius. I feel that it is a must if you trail ride .
The unit is not as beefy as the weller rack but heavier then the stock unit . If I am not mistaken they have a lifetime guarantee on it.

Thanks. I was going to buy one, but hadn't seen any feedback on it. I do trail ride some pretty tight trails, so the extra turning radius would be awesome.

Sounds
I have the standard ratio - extended travel rackzilla. The turning radius is close to 1 machine width less on a 180 deg turn. Very noticeable.
. Good news on turning radius . After LT I lost some radius from the longer wheel base

Let me know when Change it out interested to see the outcome
So I took off the weller steering tie rods and went back to stock and my shimmy went away . I know a lot of people run there stuff and it is very well made , I just could get it to work on my car .

Well I reset my toe to a quarter inch toe in and I have no shimmy or shake even though there is some play in the tie rod

Yes they are strong that’s for sure . I can grab the wheel and and feel the play but experience nothing when driving . I had a pull to the right that led me to looking for problems and found that slack but like I said after readjusting toe no more pull.
