08-21-2008, 05:01 AM
Ok soo ive had a PS leak for a while now , it leaks from the rack on the pass side and collects in the boot and every once n a while a nice puddle will form..but the other day it got pree bad and leaked out all the fluid in the res in half a day of driving..soo its time for a new rack :thumbsdow

1st Toyota wants
240$ for a new rack + 150$ core
114$ for new HP line
add about another 100$ for shipping and Duty when i pick it up from the border soo thats about 600$ out of pocket but i get 150 once i get it done n ship the old rack back soo really
450$ :cool:

Or called local parts store intown Partsource they want
360$ for a rack w/ exchange or 390$ for a better quailty one w/ exchange
70$ for HP line from Res to Pump? and
80$ for another HP line Pump to gear ? i think he said ( stupid work phone so quite)
sooo that one works out to about
550$ and pre sure comes with some sort of warrenty a year or somethin ill ask tomoro :)

Sooo question is would you go local for a lil more money but its some random noname company built one but with a warrenty orr...go cheaper but more hassel (shipping,travel to pick up) and get a genuine Toyota one from 1sttoyota with as far as i know no warrenty? never asked that yet mabye someone can fill me in ?

Ill most likly go 1sttoyota i just like to share first b4 i go out and do things haha :bigthumbu

Oh yea and the Stealership intown told me 1000$ for just a rack :duh: :ugh:

I just got one from this place, shipping was cheap, i haven't put it in yet though so I cannot attest to it's quality yet. Just wanted to give you another option.


another option would be to rebuild it yourself, but it would require some special tools for sizing/shaping the seals and the rebuild kit isn't really cheaper than a rebuilt rack.

I got mine reman from advance auto.

Thank God it was a lifetime warranty b/c as soon as I pulled the car out of the garage the new rack locked up. They did exchange it at no charge, but that was another 1/2 day wasted changing it out again. Dont think I would get one from there again, although it was the cheapest one I could find.

I got a reman from advance auto as well, and it is working fine now. I had an unidentified problem where it would be harder to turn randomly on a cold start during the winter, but it is fine now that it's warm out. I'll have to see if the problem resurfaces this winter.

Hence why I do OEM Toyota.

I bought mine from this guy and replaced mine a few weeks ago.
