Default Front end rebuild question

I am planing a front end rebuild this spring and was wondering is any part of the rack and pinion needs to be replaced besides tie rods in a typical rebuild. I have only owned recirculating ball type steering gear equipped cars prior to my 90SE so this a bit new to me. Thanks

Depends on what rach his SE has?

If he has the F41 or FE2 suspension... His rack will run $200 roughly...

I had the F41 suspension. My car pulls pretty hard to the left and the outer edges of my front tires are overely worn, so before I get an alignment, I plan to make sure all my parts are in good condition. I only want to change bad parts or parts that are on their way out.
