Steering rack rebuild on my 4.8iS last November.

I still wonder about the torque converter on the rack as it's not re-buildable.

Nice luck, if new pump is bad. We will see tomorrow as I replace the pump again.

I think if it fails it just locks up and becomes 1:1 and no more variable. I'd prob personally prefer it. I don't love the steering on wife's e70.

I just assumed it would cause a turbidity problem if it failed, but to be fair that was just a WAG.

I also don't have any love for my mechatronic shifter adjustment....

The wife is now pushing for an A8 Audi 5.0 after she burns the White Witch.

Not sure a VAG V8 is going to provide less stress.

I own a 2001 Audi S6 with the 4.2 V8, it has been wonderful. Regular maintenance, and parts as they wear out. The only major problem has been the power steering rack, I have had to replace that twice. Mine seem to fail every 75K miles or so, probably because of all that V8 weight / power / torque on top of it along with the Quattro. But then again both my wife and I drive that car like we stole it, because itís just a lot of fun to drive at any speed.

That's the one with the timing chain at the back of the engine right?

Winter Ready Checked

Finally got around to install my winter set up wheels and decided to go bigger on tires with 265/60/18 Hankook Dynopro AT M. Happy with the performance and look, zero rubbing with no lift. Surprisingly there is no road noise.
