I had the chance to change the steering rack on my friends crx last weekend. His old one was loose and making a lot of clunking noises. It was a pretty easy job and it sounds like it's a pretty common problem so I figured I would post it here. you'll need a a bunch of metric sockets with some extensions and some side cutters to remove the cotter pins in the outer tie rods.
First of all, jack the car up off the ground, enough so you can crawl under it. After you have it up in the air, take off the wheels.

If you don't have a rivet gun now is the time to whack them with a hammer and they will pop out off the steering knuckle.
