Wait, I thought this was your DD? That's a manual steering rack, isn't it? O_o That's more hardcore than I'd want in a street car...and this is coming from a guy with stiffer than prom night race car suspension.

Manual racks aren't that bad on the street. It sucks to turn while standing still, but even going a couple mph, it's pretty easy to turn.

It's nothing like a power rack after removing the belt. That's a bitch because in addition to turning the wheels, you're also having to force fluid though the lines. Also, the ratio is a bit lower for the manual rack too.

My grandfather had a mid 80's Escort Pony with manual steering, and that's the car I learned to drive a manual in. It was a bitch at low speed (which was the only speed it would go ), but being FWD may have made it worse.
