Need your input!

About to order a new rack and pinion. My question is should I get the ACDELCO for $320 or get the cardone for $200. Has anyone here had a bad experience with the Cardone brand?

Which one would you guys pick?

Thanks for any input! and,
HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

Cardone has a longer warranty. They are both remans. I'd go with the cardone.

I've bought Cardone CV's before and they started clicking after 2 off road trips.

Why do you need a new rack and pinion. My car has done about 150,000 miles and some really serious off road drive such as Australian deserts with corrugations for 300 miles plus more off roading than most Commanders have ever done and the R & P is perfect.
What's the problem? They can be adjusted if you get a click or a clunk.

Sorry, Didn't see this till now. There's a major leak from the rack. Not sure how it happened but it's there. Actually going to be working on it today. Hopefully in a few hours i'll have a new rack and new PS pump put in.
