Excellent question. I don't know. Can anyone tell me the differences between the SE/SLE rack and the SSEi rack? PArt numbers for the assemblies? GMPartsDirect has a nice price if I am looking at the right one. Steeringrack.com has an even better price considering it come with the inner tie rods, although remnufactured. Sitting on the fence here, somebody give me a push one way or the other.

I own both. But it'll take a day or two until I can get under there and record some numbers.

You would think the faster(?) 3.0 lock-to-lock rack would be the way to go. But I would wait for Will to give you the correct p/n.

Owning both, I disagree. Besides, the SSEi rack is variable ratio.

Relax on crawling under the fleet. I checked it out at Advanced Auto and they have 2 separate listings for the SE and SSEi. The one specified for the SSEi is variable ratio and twice the cost. It must be the correct one and is on order. Now to find the time, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
