    Default Power rack leak

    Hi everyone. Has anyone had any luck in installing a power rack and pinion seal kit? This car had sat up for two plus years and now the rack leaks from both bellows. Thinking of buying a seal kit for $62 instead of a $400+ rebuilt unit. Any advice?

    Since nobody was kind enough to give advise I said screw it and dumped in a bottle of Lucas. Slowed it down to a minor drip. Maybe a seal kit when it gets worse.

    Kind enough? Would you have preferred people to have given you free & wrong advice? Most of the people on here own S30s, cars that didn't need power steering. There are many other forums available such as zcar.com or zdriver.com where you will find more S130 owners.

    I thought that was the reason for seperate forums for S30's and S130's, so you could ask people who have been there and done that on either the first or the second gen Z/ZX's. After all, there were plenty of views, just nobody was kind enough to reply. Or maybe everyone else would rather just buy a new rack and be done with it. I just thought someone might have tried a seal kit and would share their experience with doing so. Excuse me for my assumption.

    Views do not equate to knowledge, and your attitude is unlikely to get you help in the future, either. I did direct you to other forums where you might be more likely to find the information you seek. Fortunately, this forum does have an ignore feature, and I will be more than happy to add you to it as of this moment. Good luck.

    I saw your post, but since all I've had to do to mine is replace the boots, I didn't respond. Guess I should have written something, but I honestly couldn't answer your initial question, so I thought I'd just sit in my corner, keep my mouth shut, and wait for someone else to talk....lol.

    Hey, I do understand. But I know someone has tried this. I guess I should take this as not much luck with seal kits. I don't like talking about my failures either, lol.
