    so after offroading one day, i went through some deep puddles, the rack and pinion makes a horrible scream when ever i turn the wheel left or right, anybody have possible fixes? replace the whole thing? or replace just the seals(will that work)?

    You probably have a tear in one of the boots and let mud get in the rack. I think the only solution is to get a new rack but im not sure.
