Manual steering rack bushing part numbers?

I know the left side bushing is the same between PS and non PS racks.

On the right side they are different. Anyone have the part number? Are they even still available? A PS right side bushing cannot be substituted, can it?

The power rack is a larger diameter, so the passenger side bush will not interchange with a manual rack.
IIRC, I used a 1" (?...maybe larger) sway bar bushing from Summit as a substitute.

The part number for the right side bushing on a non-power steering rack is: FB01-32-123

according to mazdaspeed it's no longer available...

I don't think you can substitute the p/s version. I think it's a different diameter.

time to get a good rack and de-power it

Thanks.. I like my rack There is a seller on eBay that has poly bushings for the FC PS rack, so I was hoping to make something work, or perhaps see if they would be interested in making the right side bushing for the manual rack.

Although Clockker's idea would probably work as well.

I just attempted to order the bushing.. a mazda parts place let me place the order.. we will see if it goes through.

Cut a PS bushing and tape it together?..install,squish,done?
we are talking about the rubber right?
..or the bracket itself?..you can modify a Ps bracket if you look at it

I figured you'd like those.. I may order anyway and make something work on the right side.

I'm actually a little scared to remove mine.

Some good news! The gentlemen at Richocet Tech said he would be willing to make the poly manual rack bushing.

In lieu of asking if someone has a donor bushing, Is the OD of the manual rack bushing the same as the PS bushing? Or asking another way, is the right side rack mount the same part number for PS and NON PS cars?

If it is the same, all he needs to do is change the ID of the bushing he already makes, and we have poly manual steering rack bushings.

If it is not the same I certainly need to find a donor bushing to supply him

No, the 2 brackets are different part numbers:
PS: FB05-32-133
NPS: FB01-32-133

I feel like they're different widths... but I could be wrong.

Those Richocet Tech poly bushings did a great job taking out the slack in my steering. Hope you can find a donor for the manual rack.

Hey LargeOrangeFront, were you able to find a donor right manual rack bushing?

Any updates guys on exactly what size the sway bar bushing can be substituted for this from Summit Racing or anywhere else? I'm on the verge right now to rebuilding my 88 manual rack that I've just purchased and would love to have the peace of mind of having no slack before installation.

Curious if you can use a power steering bracket and tack a piece of metal on the inside to reduce the inside curve..then just cut the power steering rubber to go around the manual rack???

All you need to do is measure the diameter of your rack, go to Summit/Jeggs, wherever and order the corresponding Energy Suspension sway bar bushing. It comes with a bracket that can used and is practically a drop in fix (IIRC, you have to mod the bracket holes a bit to work, but no big deal).
And done.

They come in pairs, so for $20-ish bucks you have a backup to practice on or just split it with one of the other seekers here.
