I've just bought a couple of ball joints from an outlet that says QH (Quinton Hazell) have gone out of business. This company made the steering racks for the DAX cars. I hope there is an easy solution to this, but I bought a couple of steering gaiters just in case...

Dax currently get their steering racks manufactured by Quaife. ;)

Looks to be true. The BBC website is reporting that KPMG took over as administrators of the parent company Klarius on Wednesday last week. They are laying off a lot of the workforce and closing various production plants. Sad news.

Ah. That's good for Dax then. Are the racks the same as the QH ones? It's just that I'll need to source a mounting bracket eventually (or make one up), I hope DJ can supply one still...
