I'm replacing my entire steering system (on a fox coupe), so far my list consists of 93 Cobra Rack and Pinion, MM Bump Steer Kit, Flaming River Steering shaft. As of now I'm keeping the stock K-member. So my question is would it be good to use Solid Rack Bushings or Poly Bushings?

I have the MM solid rack bushing kit.
Instantly I felt 500% more road noise. I can feel the texture of the road through the steering wheel.
If you drive your car a lot, I would go for polys instead.
I've learned to deal with it though.

MM aluminum offset rack bushings......be sure to grind off the steel bushings in the K member first!!!

Is that the reason it says not to use solid bushings on a stock K-member car on MM's web site?

Maybe? It's not that hard to make them work and be safe on the stocker (mine is a 2000). It helped but I still need the bump steer kit and the MM k member/a arms.

Mine's on my stock K-member also.
No problems here...put on about 13K miles so far.
