Porsche Crest WTB: 944 Manual Steering Rack Inner Tie Rods

Looking for an NOS inner tie rod for a (1983) Manual Steering rack. Ideally an original TRW part. This is for a race car, so the old VW Rabbit ones do not hold up.
I think 924 Manual racks were the same, but not sure. Same part likely fits other cars.

Any help or suggestions appreciated!

Chuck, what's wrong with the VW ones? Experienced failure on the track?


Another option you might try:

Three in a row. I got around two events each and had about a 1/4" play. The VW ones use rubber as an isolator where the two different steel pieces are pressed together on the original parts. They are probably OK for a street car, just not a race car that gets treated a little rough!

The Rennlist discussion (from 2009) thread would be great if I had a lathe and the skills!!!

I have found a cross reference list, and will look around. It is just that the TRW part I KNOW works well and lasts a long time.

If you don't mind dropping the rack, I bet the guy(s) at Poway Auto Machine on Poway Rd would be happy to do it for you.
Very good, quick work at a very good price...

Lathe not necessary, drill press (or regular hand drill with a good fixture) could do the same job.
