The car comes with a quick steering rack like STi. It was advertised that way when new, no conversion necessary.

I thought I saw that it was the year-early version of the rack, but not the STI rack.  Thanks for the clarification.  Didn’t mean to drag up the topic again or hijack the thread.

Whatever it is, it is much quicker than the steering rack on my 02 wrx. Over the years some people have argued that it is not an STi steering rack, they’ve used the part number to make their point. When I drive my Saabaru with its original steering rack or my business partner’s husband stock 05 STi there is no difference in steering between the two cars, they feel identical.

Op, you need to show pictures of your vehicle for sale.

Not an STI steering rack.  This info just won't die.  We got the new WRX rack before the WRX got it, that is all.

Feels no different than driving my friend’s 05 STi.

That clears up things not at all smile
Probably one of those items that Saab engineers improved on slightly so Subaru took the improved part and put it into later Imprezas.

I was hoping that someone could confirm or deny that what the engineers call the "new steering rack with cannon mount" is either the "new STi rack" or the "next generation WRX rack".  :-)
