Reading the 'Dadson Racing' thread I noticed a reference to "steering rack bump/rotation stop u bolt". I kinda remember that I had a U-clamp on my steering rack which I though a previous owner had fitted for reasons unknown to me, anyway I discarded it.

Is the clamp OEM?
Is is always necessary? Is there a design fault or does the rack only rotate if incorrect rubber bushes are used on the steering rack clamps?

I'm not convinced that's anything other than a placebo item Nissan used to placate whinging customers.

Bugger, but I did have the right item (less rubber), it must be the only thing I thrown out.
