This video is part of a series on this 2002 Chevy Cavalier. When this car
first showed up it had been in a minor collision, it had slid off the road
into a curb. I found a damaged wheel but I also found that it would not
drive down the road properly and the steering wheel was way off. I
concluded that the power steering rack had been damaged. This is part 1 of
the replacement of that broken power steering rack. On a scale of 1-10 I
would say the difficulty level of this one is about a 7 so be prepared for
a bit of a fight if you need to do this job. In addition to the Cavalier
this video should also apply to other GM vehicles of this same size, the
Pontiac Sunfire comes to mind as well as the equivalent Buick and Olds
Here are links to some of the videos referenced in the video.

2006 Tacoma 4.0 V6 Cherrybomb Extreme Muffler
2006 Tacoma SR5 Prerunner 4.0 V6 automatic with a Cherrybomb Extreme 2.5"
SI/SO offset muffler.
Stock muffler was just cut off and the Cherrybomb and some extra piping
welded in it's place. The rest of the Exhaust and engine are completely stock.
Before anyone asks, those are 20" Enkei wheels off a 1st gen Tundra XSP,
those are LED tail lights off an 09 Tacoma, and the center of the dash is
out of a 2012 and the head unit is a Pioneer D3 (soon to be changed), and
the guage cluster is blue because I changed all of the LED's in it.
