I have 217,500 miles on my P5 and have loved every mile since I purchased her with 159,000. This is my favorite commuter car. I have new: motor mounts, control arms with bushings and ball joints, struts, strut mounts in the last 5000 miles because these parts were totally shot. (I pushed this beyond the limit because the rubber in the motor mounts actually disintegrated) I have verified that the end links, CV joints, sway bar bushings and rack mount bushings are OK. I am still getting a hard clunking noise from the center of the firewall and the car is uncontrollable on wet ground. My experience as an enthusiast includes building several Mustangs, several Hondas and a street legal Dodge Dakota that was putting 455 HP to the ground with the A/C on and I thought it was the rack. Mazda and Pep Boys have also checked the car out and both recommend that I replace the steering rack (without any suggestions from me.)
I know that they can be adjusted, though. It is such a tight fit that I cannot see in there to check it out. I think that If I can find the right tools, I can adjust it.
