steering rack

Just broke the steering rack riding at Rockhouse (Hatfeild - McCoy, WV)
Any suggestions on a replacement. Have heard the Uni-Steer needs some fabrication to make it work right. Would like a good tough bolt in and go unit.
Thanks

We had to stop selling them due to bending the bracket, we made some additional brackets and welded to ours and have had no issues.

They really need to make a change

Ive had the Gear One with the heavy duty rods and ends for a little over a year now and have spent about $300 on tie rod ends and other wear items. I live in the mountains of PA and the mud seems to wreck havoc on some of the parts. The rack itself has been bullit proff, just think i wouldve been better off using my stock rods and ends the Gear one pieces are pricey!!!

From my personal experience i would not use hiems on anything that is used in the mud, slop or water. For me in THOSE situations a sealed ball joint would be a better pick. For the sand, deserts ect the hiems work just fine. Also most good hiems are self lubricated so no need to grease of oil them ....... once you do its the beginning of the end for them. My rack is just over one year old with no issues and i beat the PISS OUTTA IT.

I can believe that, seems like alot of aftermarket products produce out west dont perform well in eastern environments. Do u happen to have any stock rods and ends? I bent one of mine when i broke the stock rack and like a dummy sold my one good rod and ends since you cant buy just a rod from kawie.

I would not say that ..... its just knowing what you are using and what it is capable of taking IMO. I know from my experiences that hiems wont hold up to mud, water ect.
