    Default Steering racks...GM or re-con unit?!?1

    Hi all, i need a new rack on my sri, basically ive been given a price by a local garage who wana use a genuine item and hence it's going to be over £600!! Just the rack is over £400 from VX

    I get trade at a local motor factors, and they have quoted me under £200 for a exchange unit, so thinking what do i do...

    What you all do? Buy the cheaper one and get a garage to fit it, or pay top dollar for a genuine one...

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default

    From what i've read the Vectra steering racks are pretty weak so an exchange unit would probably be just as good as a new genuine one.

    I'd personally go for the recon
