RE: Saab Steering Rack

Ok taking a chance and buying this rack thinking it is off a 2005 Saab Aero. Can anybody verify if the picture at least looks right with the right mounts? Also which steering rack bushing set do I buy? One for a 2004 STI or 2005? This is supposed to be bolt right up. Thanks

If it's the OEM rack off a Saab 9-2X Aero it should be the same as an '04 STi rack. You'll need '04 bushings as well.

Thanks, whiteline has different part numbers when you look up the 2.

They show KSR206 for the SAAB same as 05 STI I think and KSR202 or the 04 STI

The '05 STi rack is a direct-mount style rack. That would explain the difference in part numbers for the bushings.

Ok but the 05 Saab should look like the 04 STI or is the 05 Saab going to be a direct mount and fit fine? I guess that is what I am trying to figure out
