    steering rack IVA Friday

    HELP - does anyone have an AK GEN 1 steering rack under their bench because they have upgraded to power steering?

    Mine has a serious knock when turning left to right - guy came to the house to do the tracking and can see the off side arm twanging! Oh - I have my IVA booked for this Friday. I am going to ring AK in the morning but 7 years down the road and its not done a mile yet - how do I demand a replacement? sigh........even if they do manual racks anymore..........SIGH.......To speed up the process - drop me a text if you want to sell me your old GEN 1 rack...........

    Thanks Lee 07932 56501

    Well to update all.....A phone call to AK 8:30 yesterday morning, spoke to Jon and explained the above. I was right they no longer do manual racks.......I think we both said "oh sh*t" at the same time! Give me a minute he says, let me check upstairs, the phone goes quiet for what seemed like an hour but I hear those magic words!

    I have found a 2nd hand one from an upgrade to power steering, delivered within 24 hours today, I will be fitting it in the morning and now back on track for Friday. Just cover the carriage he says!

    Where do you start to say thank you with after sales service like that?

    A massive thanks to Jon and Wendi at AK, another example of great after sales service many customers openly write about.

    Thanks again, Lee

    can't fault that for customer services at all - it's that type of after sales that would have me going to AK if i was to ever build/buy one.

    Good luck Friday with the IVA Lee
