That's what happened with mine. I thought I needed a rack till I looked more at it and realized the joint was all rusted up

So update sorry it’s been a minute but what ended up doing was replaced the rack and putter tie rod ends as well and new pump but what I didn’t do and just took it for granted was I did Not count my revolutions
On the steering joint to the steering shaft and it was throwing everything off. I disconnected it and counted both turn radiuses and put it back in the center and was able to bleed almost immediately and my alignment was barely off.
