I know you guys have busted front diffs and CV axles. But never heard anyone reported a broken tie rod or any other steering component (other than cornik's steering pump). So how is the new rack-and-pinion system holding up on the trails?

Cornick had more then a steering pump issue. They have or will be replace pretty much the entire steering system include tie rod ends.

I didn't chime in because other than mine. :) But they are going to replace the power steering rack and tie rods as well as the pump.

But, I'm the ONLY one having these problems, so I don't think it has anything to do with the trails.

Right, if there's only one reported case, it should be one of those chit happens..., not a trail related issue.

Thanks!

The only steering problem I have is that Firestone can not get my steering wheel straight or my front end aligned so that it doesn't pull to the right.

I'll be taking it to the dealers here at some point and have them look at it.

Not sure if you're familiar with Grunzen's set-up but ... he had to have his steering links lengthened when he had his LCA's moved out.
