I had a good think about it and I had to consider a few things eg.

1. The length of the rack now that the lower control arms are different and how that might effect bump steer.

2. The angle of the pinion input shaft after flipping the rack and how it would connect to the steering column.

3. The way the rack mounts, I need an easy way of adjusting the rack vertically to match the adjustment built into my control arm mounts.

All of the above checks out so last night I bought a rack off ebay USA since all the racks here are RHD.
