ok....thanx for the reply but the problem is i am using this steering and i have a particular steering ratio in my mind. and yes i also know the total rack length and dia of the pinion. so can u plsssssssss help find out pitch.........

There is formula for calculating the pitch, but it also requires the technical data as written earlier.

in Rack and pinion
first u need to know the load,to choose the module type.ie.module1,1.5 etc.higher the module more distance u will travel for one rotation of pinion.and lower the resolution will be.
you need to have the gears technical handbook to choose the appropriate rack and pinon.give me some time i will post the gear reference manual.using which u can do the module and pitch calculations.
