    I have got up-down play of my rack inside the steering rack housing, not the whole housing itself. Is there an adjustment for this, or is a new rack in order?

    I have visual confirmation that it's the actual rack loose inside the housing.

    getting there....
    sounds to me like you'll need to replace the rack, or have it rebuilt......which will probably end up costing more than buying another one.

    I am completely unable to get the fluid send and return line fittings out of the rack housing. I have soaked them, heated them, all they do is try to round off. Any tips?

    Mine were ez to get out.... Make sure u use the correct size wrench.... If that dosent work u may end up cutting them...... I just replaced my rack and pump..... Bleeding is a witch.... I still have air getting in my system somehow which causes a whine... I got a rebuilt rack from Detroit axle.... They have a lifetime warranty....
