Rack and Pinion Bushings 1995-2000 Tacoma 4WD

Polyurethane Rack and Pinion Bushings from Energy Suspension will tighten the steering of your 95-00 Toyota Tacoma and last much longer than the original bushings. Rubber steering rack bushings have a tendancy to wear down and cause the steering wheel to feel loose, especially with hard driving, but polyurethane bushings will firm up that connection and last the life of your vehicle.

Source of Sloppy Steering

Your steering wheel controls the direction of your wheels by way of the steering rack and pinion. The original bushings that hold the rack and pinion in place are made of rubber to absorb vibration from the road but as they flex and bend the bushings begin to wear out and allow the rack and pinion to become loose. Besides everyday wear, rubber bushings can crack or degrade with prolonged exposure to heat, motor chemicals, and road grime. This can cause some clunking and clicking noises when you turn and jerkiness in your steering as the gears of the rack and pinion become misaligned.

Whether you're taking your Tacoma down to the river bank or around downtown Dallas you want to know that your steering is going to respond as it should.

Tighten Steering, Increase Response

If you want to remedy a loose steering rack then Energy Suspension's Rack and Pinion Bushings will replace those old rubber bushings that are no longer holding your steering components in place. This will eliminate the loose feeling in your steering wheel and keep the pinion aligned with the teeth of the rack so your steering is smooth and responsive.

These polyurethane rack and pinion bushings last longer than rubber since they don't flex and bend in the same way. Poly is also immune to the elements that will break down rubber bushings and cause them to crack or rot right off of your Toyota. Suspension.com covers these bushings with our exclusive lifetime warranty which is handled in house by our exceptional customer service staff.

starstarstarstarstar_border" Great except for sleeve size "

Installed these this weekend & these bushings do a good job of firming everything up once installed. As the other reviews mention, be sure to have a good 9/16 metal drilling bit on hand for the center bushing sleeve before trying to install, or be prepared for some cussing & time wasted trying to make it work. Most bit sets have a 1/2 bit as the largest, and Lowes was out of single 9/16 bits (at $15.99, by the way), so spent lots of time trying to ream out with my existing 1/2 bit & a round file.\n\nSince lots of people have pointed out this issue, it is surprising that Energy Suspension hasnt just found the correct sized sleeve to include in the kit!
