Ok, you are going to need to use a steering rack from an ML55. Other model ML steering racks will not work. Additionally, there is a production change in the steering rack after vin numbers ending in A289560. You need to use either a rack from a 2001 or from any other year as long as the vin number is XXXXX than A289560.
