You will need the rack and steering link. PS link is different and will not work on the manual rack. Original tie rods will work assuming the're not worn. You may want to remove the rest or the PS components.

A rebuilt manual rack is somewhere around $300. If your rack is leaking badly and you don't want it - I'll take it.

Job isn't difficult - biggest annoyance is access to the U-joints and removing the tie rods

Once you have those and the PS hoses disconnected, it is just 4 bolts holding it in there.

Question

I want to change mine to manual also, but got the impression it was expensive and a PITA.
Will the shaft coming down from the steering wheel bolt directly to the manual steering box?
What about belts/pulleys, do I just remove the PS pump and get a belt for a manual steering engine?
Seeing as I am trying to sell the car and it would probably devalue the car to remove it I am not too interested right now.

Dunno... selling a 944 definitely is a PITA! so if I give up and keep the car I may pull the PS and the A/C off (both are working)

Anyone want to take my '84 as a down payment for their 944S2 or 951?
