Steering Rack puck

"Does anyone know if the puck is supposed to be flat on the bottom? Mine is badly worn and needs replacement/ repair."

Rob-

Replacement parts for these are very hard to get as I noted above. If the puck is the only thing worn, you have two options: Weld material onto the worn area and have it machined to spec (close is probably good enough since it is sprung) or have a new part made. It does not seem to be a difficult part to duplicate. And, in any case, I would replace both bearings since these are cheap and relatively easy to replace assuming you have the rack out of the car.
