Default Possible Buy

Ok, coming down the line is a 96 SSE, it'* a bright red, body is in good condition for the year at least from the pictures. It has 118,xxx miles on it. Leather, sunroof, all the goodies. Now my only question is how hard is it to replace the rack and pinion on these cars? I've heard from some that the engine cradle may need to be dropped a little, and I've heard from others that it just comes right out. I am going this weekend to look over the car to see if it is even worth it. They're only wanting $600 for it so my guess is that it can be either a deal or just another clunker to not even bother with. Let me know what you guys think.

$600 is cheap. The rack and pinion on these cars can be a bit tricky to take out for the first time doing one. I would suggest if you buy this car to buy a set of FSM'* to help you alone the road of owning this car.
