OT sort of; 260 Z rack LUBE??

I have a 260Z rack on my Crown V8 car. I was wondering what kind of lube I would use in it? Have new boots and will fill it as I'm installing. TIA Cheers, Dave

Google is your friend. I didn't know either but quick search has various choices. It is probably best if you read some of the sites and make your choice. Good luck

best wishes, Steve

I have a Ford rack with a Saginaw pump. The pump calls for ATF. I remember reading up on the differences between ATF and Power Steering fluid but can't recall much other than one (ATF)doesn't foam as much. Look up the pump manufacturer, there should be a forum or site discussing it. Good Luck and look forward to seeing your finished result on the road!

Non power rack.
Uses EP type grease.
If cleaned out of all old grease, Mobil 1 synthetic wheel bearing grease will out last the car.
