Hey guys, plan to overhaul my 1988 steering rack over the winter time. But need the rubber mounts that surround the 1988 steering rack to the chassie \ crossmember.
Problem is I am stationed in Europe and the source should ship international.

Your best bet is to buy from a Fiero owner here on the MALL and make shipping arrangements. Those mounts are hard to find here in the US.

I believe the driver's side is common to all years and may still be available. The passenger side is not available. I ended up fabbing my own.

Rare Parts has them listed as part # 15908, rack and pinion mount bushing.

They show the same set fitting all years?????

I have a thread in here somewhere asking the same thing. I assumed (ass-u-me) that it would be a common part so when I removed the steel/rubber mount I had to bend/break it. Little did I know that the mount was unavailable and VERY hard to find. I stared looking at pics of other racks that used a similar system, which is not common any longer. Most bolt to the cross-member and use a bushing w/ bolt in the center. I found a couple of vehicles that did use our system and so started buying a few here and there. In the end I think I used part of a Toyota p/u truck mount and the bottom part of the stock rubber/steel one. I used the bottom because it spaced the rack out far enough and centered it, I used the poly from the P/U to form the rest. It seams to be working, but is not ideal.

Good luck on your search.

Can anyone verify if these are correct for the '88?

I think I have pics on my work computer, but I did not post them as I'm a bit tenative on posting something so untried. I wouldn't want someone to get hurt following my lead.
I'll dig the pics up, but suffice to say it wasn't easy and involves some fabrication and welding.

Bob

Edit... I looked all over for the pics, but could not locate any.

Interesting, the picture is the 88 set, but the dates are wrong because 84-87 used two similar to the 88 driver's side. Google-net search showed the part as unavailable.

Ok the crusade for the parts is over. Got the parts here in Germany and the part number is from Moog -> K6227 for the 1988 steering rack unit.
So the build is on the way and I also install my version of the zero lash/play stabilizer bar end link´s.

So thank´s all for your help !.

Sorry, but may I ask if those 2 bushings were in the same box in the picture??

Its good to know that its a Moog part number, but the box shown is TRW.

Please confirm...
Nice to see you search ended up successful.

Me too, was looking for a new pair 8 years ago.

Yes the two rubber bushings and the clamp for the boot came in the box. BOUGHT two packs both the same ... sure its NOS but so far as I know TRW is today under MOOG. This also confirms the picture if you Google it what I did not knew from the start because there was no clear evidence. But now it's for sure .... mine was declared to fit also the Pontiac 1000 steering rack. Problem MOOG UK online catalog do not list the number K6227 anymore. All in all I think the part itself will be discontinued ( my feeling) because of no demands/orders.
