I think it's actually rackdoctor.net unless you mean a different rack doctor. When I bought my Z3 rack I checked rackdoctor.net and I was sure that they did not deliver to Canada, but I just checked again and they do. I ended up buying one off of eBay from BuyAutoParts who have sh!t customer service.

You can also try autopartsway.ca but they will be more expensive.

Last winter... I think it was a recent thing. Something regarding brokerage and cores. Still very happy with them though, great product and good pricing

Do an E36 rack swap? Good upgrade, and you can get E36 rack at most junkers.

There's a place in London called Brake and Steering who would rebuild your rack for less than it'd cost you to find one rebuilt out of the USA, etc.

http://www.brakeandsteering.com/

Check 'em out.

How does $200 + $150 core sound for an AC-Delco rebuilt unit from www.rockauto.com? They aren't in Canada and they ship UPS, but like Tirerack, they have preferred brokerage/customs arrangements with no extra charges at your door. I bought wheel bearings for my truck from them last summer and they were at my door with 48 hrs.

I just got an E36 steering rack from rackdoctor. Free shipping to the border and I just drove over and picked it up. Haven't installed it yet, but it looks great.
