    I got a Cardone 22-2000 rack from Rock Auto (said QTY 1 remaining, and that does appear to be true, item is no longer on website). Received part and it does have the SPR ZM code on the casting.

    Does that mean it's definitely a Cobra rack? Are there any other ways to check that what's inside is what I actually ordered?

    It's been confirmed by maximum motorsports. Not much difference between any 99-04 based racks.

    Say what you want but when I replaced the rack in my Mach 1 with a Terminator rack, it was a significant difference in the amount of assist.

    I forget the external stamping numbers but I think that is a Terminator rack. That doesn't mean anything if it is a rebuilt unit though because who knows what the rebuild guys did when they put it back together. If you put it in and it feels like you have way less assist, then you got the Terminator rack.

    Double post.

    I went through a lot of research on this topic over the last 6-8 months. Jack information came on corral when I was asking about AGR racks.

    Initially I wanted a terminator rack to upgrade on my 90 coupe. I ended up buying a used SN95 steering rack from a 96-97 mustang.

    After Jacks information, I decided any SN95 steering rack is an upgrade over the stock fox rack. I hope to install it this year.

    So I got this rack when I did my swap (and it was quite a bit cheaper then):
    Mustang Rack And Pinion 94-04 15:1 Ford Mustang Rack and Pinion AGR Steering
    When I talked to them at the time they said the Terminator rack and the R rack were the same except for the steering limiters because the R had wider wheels and it would rub so the travel had to be limited more. Maybe I remember that conversation incorrectly but I can tell you for sure that this rack vs my factory rack had VERY different assist.

    Those are custom built. They can make them with nearly any valving you want.

    But I'd take Mr. Hidley's word over many others. Maximum Motorsports has a very good reputation with suspension and steering.

    I am aware the Jack stated the valving is the same, but I have heard from other sources the Torsion rod is still different.


    I have a broken 2004 GT and 2004 cobra rack. Been wanting to rip them apart and actually see
