Well, heres another thing that people have asked about. I basicly took the stock power steering rack and gimped it into manual steering. I did this by draining the rack of most of its fluid. Then, I used a saw (sawzall ofcourse!) to shorten the metal line that come off the rack. I then cut the rubber return (low pressure) line to a shorter length and sleaved it over the metal line.

This picture should explain it better:

Over all, I'm more than thrilled with it, very very very few bad side effects. Plus, look at all this room I freed up!
