First time replacing a steering rack in my 1998 4Runner. I did NOT lock the steering wheel. I took 4Runner in for an alignment but was told it couldn’t be aligned because steering wheel was not locked and is upside down. I know goofy rookie mistake….Alignment shop wanted $550 to correct this….
Unless I’m missing something, it seems like a need to make sure the wheels are straight, disconnect rag joint, reset steering wheel in the correct position and then tighten everything back up.
I am definitely open to any coaching or suggestions if this isn’t correct since I did not lock the steering wheel before replacing steering rack.
