    What conidition was the rack in when you put it in? It probably needs new rack ends, tie rod ends, and new ball joints wouldn't hurt.

    what do you mean by sloopy?
    did you put new tie rod ends on the non-power steering rack? they could be flogged

    the power steering arms will make the steering a little bit heavier but give you more lock than non power steering arms

    Not an issue.

    People in 86's and KE70's put power steering arms on non power steering racks to get more lock.
