Rack and Pinion

Do they have a rack and pinion steering conversion for a 1994 Grand Cherokee ?

I wouldnt say that is at all feasible on a solid front axle.

I was trying to get away from the straight axle mainly because I use this vehicle for a daily driver. However, its probably not worth the time or money to convert.

"Trying to get away from the straight axle"?

So you are doing an IFS conversion? I don't see how a rack and pinion would benefit you in any way whatsoever.

it's not the solid axle making it ride bad.

good springs and good, new, shocks are where you should be heading.

Where would you even begin to figure out how to convert a 94 ZJ To IFS. And Why?
