Is there a way to do the rack bushing without removing the rack? If I take out the spare and the plastic there can I get at it to atleast check it?
I just replaced mine a couple of weeks ago. The instruction sheet included says you can. However, I was already more than half way there, so I pulled the entire rack. That way you can also see if the pinion bearings are okay or not.
(bushing isn't seated completely. Didn't get that pix)
Next on the list is the control arm bushings.
I agree that it may be the ball joint(s). The bottom ones are pressed in, (or lock ring). When I bought my Fiero more than 3 years ago, the PO stuffed a Pepsi can and wrapped duct tape around the left lower ball joint. Loud clunking sound.
