I bought one from the Fiero Factory years ago. I had bought a rebuilt one from the Fiero store and the original must have been damaged in the past as it had a "catch" in it when turning the wheel. It never went away. The always is a potential of faulty parts when buying used or rebuilt ones.

Many 88 steering racks get rebuilt by their owners. It depends on what 'done' is.....but often it is the bushing on the passenger side.
