A couple more tips from my own experience...I am really hesitant to have a dealer swap out the rack, and potentially cause other issues. Car has 43K on it, it's always garaged, virtually never sees rain, and the steering works flawlessly. Is there any reason to have the recall performed?
1. When scheduling the job confirm with the service advisor that beside the rack itself they are ordering all single-use fasteners which need to be disturbed during the job, including fasteners for front AND rear alignment. Front fasteners should be covered by the recall. You may need to pay for the rear suspension fasteners if they need to adjust the rear alignment (probably a 50/50 chance). In my case I had to come back for the rear alignment because it was slightly out of spec but they did not have the rear fasteners on hand.
2. Before bringing the car in, have them verify and confirm to you that they have ALL the replacement fasteners, including for rear suspension alignment, on hand.
3. When you do bring the car in confirm with the service advisor (and ask him to confirm with the tech) that they are aware of the need to zero out the steering angle sensor before the alignment.
4. Just for the heck of it, to show that you know as much as they do, ask them how they perform the rack swap - by dropping the cross-member or by raising the engine. If he or she answers that they do it by the book, ask what the book says.
5. Tell them upfront that you want to receive the alignment printout with the before and after figures, and ask for it when you pick up the car.
6. Before driving away after picking up the car, drive around in the parking lot and do some very low speed fast steering wheel turns lock to lock and listen for noises.
7. Take the car onto an open straight highway at speed and make sure steering wheel is straight and does not pull and car is tracking straight.
Being a stickler for detail might make them more careful because they know you will be a pain in their a$$ if they don't get it 100% right.
