Steering rack rebuild kit for Evo 6 ?

I would like to buy a rebuild kit for my Evo 6 "TME" steering rack just to refresh it while its out of the car, is there any around? Then only similar I could find is this: https://powersteeringseals.com/produ...ion-2003-2006/

However it isn't for the Evo 6, but I would imagine most parts would be similar with the 6? Anyone got experience on this or knows where to get parts (joints, seals, etc) to rebuild a rack?

I am also looking for upgrading the bushes of the rack. Not sure if uprated (Ralliart or else) items exist (maybe 7-8-9 item fit?), and more important, if RHD and LHD rack bushes are the same (should be but you never know).

Was also looking for uprated bushes for the rack, but there doesn't seems to be any. Any help?

We will have an incoming Evo 6 project and also might need the steering rack rebuild. We'll just finish installing the shocks and ridge grappler tires on the current Wrangler project. The Evo owner said the dash and steering rack was somehow messed up by his son.

off topic - PRS on facebook do a quick rack for LHD 5,6 if it is of interest.
