No no no. Dont pack it with anything.

The inner tie rod end will be pre lubricated, as well as the outer tie rod end.


The rack is lubricated with power steering fluid, or if its a manual rack, is greased upon being built in the factory and would only be regreased during a rebuild/overhaul.


If you needed to grease something, grease the rack where the nylon guide bushing is.

The nylon bushings is on the passenger side inside the gearbox between the rack and the gearbox housing. There are two little tabs that hold it in place. You'll need some picks and whatnot to get it out.



Use whatever general purpose synthetic grease you can buy locally at your auto parts store. I used valvoline synthetic multi purpose grease. Don't over grease is, the nylon bushing needs some space for air to move through

If you're taking the rack out of the car, don't even bother trying to bend the lock washers. Just loosen them and the little feet will break off. You can then then the rack and the ears will fall out
