Thanks, I'll take anything I can get! I'm driving this thing to the salvage yard if I can't get it fixed soon without dumping too much more $$ at it. After it was all put back together, now there is a power steering fluid leak at the rack & pinion, still haven't crawled under there to see where. It's always had a slow leak from the driver side end, but just a few drops which collect inside the boot. I knew the cup seals were in bad shape where the lines plug in, they were egg shaped, thought maybe they'd be a problem. I bet that's where it's coming from. New rebuild kit on the way smh.I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and before going to bed tonight, I'll swing a dead chicken around!
