    Hi All,
    I in the market for a new steering rack and Im wondering if the steering racks differ between:

    - 5 lug vs 6 lug
    - 6 lug prerunner vs 6 lug 4x4
    - V6 vs I4

    I am V6 4x4, can I use a Prerunner steering rack?

    I found these on ebay, can anyone confirm if any will work on my truck? Thanks!

    You should be able to use a steering rack from a pre-runner on your 4x. As long as it's a steering rack from a 2nd gen V6 tacoma you should be ok.

    In case you didn't notice, the first link is a steering column.

    Do yourself a favor and follow the above advice. I'm about to install my third rack at 110K if I ever get the truck back from my dealer (failed motor mount). I wouldn't buy another NEW OEM rack - AND certainly wouldn't buy one pulled from a wreck with 60,000+ miles...
