In this removal article, we will be showing you how to remove the rack and pinion for all 1994-2004 Mustangs. The rack and pinion are a vital part of your Mustang’s chassis. If this is worn or leaking, it can affect the overall safety and handling of the vehicle. Normal wear and tear over time can cause excessive play in the steering, wandering on the road, pump failure due to fluid loss, or even an accident can happen.

You can use this general removal on all 1994-2004 vehicles. Throughout these year ranges, some hose fitting and bolt sizes can vary. Overall this one should take you roughly an hour to complete.

Tools Needed

  • Lift or jacks
  • Jack stands
  • 3/8" ratchet or impact
  • Assorted sockets
  • Wrenches
  • Pliers
  • Hammers
  • Pry bar
