Default A Followup to Leaks post

I went today and purchased some new front brake pads for my
Camry,...............as some of you will likely remember it is a 97
4Cyl . Pads are not free, but I will rest easier knowing they are
Toyota Genuine parts............
Whilst I was at the dealership, I priced the Rack for my leaking
Steering rack. The dealership I visited gave me two prices and both
were genuine Toyota parts also.
Toyota Rebuilt rack = $430.00
Toyota NEW rack = $800.00
I also asked if there were alternatives, and to my surprise, there are
specific parts available to repair the rack that is already in the

I was short on time, as I was using part of my lunch hour ( company
paid ) and needed to get moving, so I told him I'd come and chat about
it another day when time allows..............I know, seems like a
story with no ending, but it's how it happened.

Anyone done any repairs to a rack? maybe as I suspoct, the seals are
bad, maybe some new boots on the ends?????............What else might
be involved?????

I'll try and make some more time this next week or so, and maybe find
out what it will take do rpair the rack myself. It can't be much
differnet than repairing any kind of hydraulic cylinder or
ram?.........could it?



It's is not, it isn't ain't, and it's it's, not its, if you mean it is. If you don't, it's its.
Then too, it's hers. It isn't her's. It isn't our's either. It's ours, and likewise yours
and theirs. -- Oxford University Press, Edpress News
