This is tempting. I either have to relplace my rack or just convert it to manual... would the wife still be able to crank the wheel? I had a manual rack in my 92 Toyota pickup and it wasn't bad at all.

My wife complains about it, but gets used to it. Just tell her to man up! :P

Keep tires rolling during parking.  Parallel parking may be a little grueling for her, but watch out she could develop a grip that puckers.  Dad's '69 Z/28 w/o PS used to lift my ass out of the seat while parallel parking, but the road feel was well worth it!
