    i am doing a sirII swap into my 93 civic ex and i am removing to a/c .and power stearing. i was wondering if i need to replace the strearing rack since i wont be using the pump anymore? i was thinking it would be hard on the rack if i dont use the pump, just muscle power. any advice would help. i figured from a dx would work.

    were could i get some caps that would fit. could i get some from a hardware store or something like autozone?

    and there looks like there is a sensor ing the main line running the steering rack. what about that?

    get two bolts of the same thread and size and plug the holes, no sweat.


    i noticed a huge difference in my sol after doin this swap and not running power steering, alotttt harder to turn everywhere, i just need the line from a b series pump i think so i can have power steering back!

    if i was you id spend the little bit of money it is and get a CX rack, the gearing is different and alot easier to turn since it was meant to run with no hydraulic assist.

    its a basic rack, it wont be expensive at all!

    just an option thats all! :)
