Sounds good my buddy is a mechanic and he thought it was some kind os specialized tools and a lot of work I'm gonna do it this weekend. I've had to fill the resevoir like 1 to 2 times a day. I appreciate the helpMy buddy is a GM mechanic, he charged me $200.00 for upper and lower ball joints both sides, drivers axle seal, pinion seal, rack & pinion and while he installed those, I changed the motor oil, front and rear diff oil, and the transfer case. After watching and helping it really wasn't that bad. No special tools to replace the rack, just a tight squeeze.
I don't think you can replace any seals, its probably cheaper to replace the entire unit with a lifetime warranty than to try to rebuild it.
Its an 02 envoy 14mm tie rods (per my measurements)the ball joints and the axle and pinion seals needed special tools, but not the rack. you have to remove the cross member, then its 2 bolts that hold the rack in, a bolt that holds the plate with the in out lines, and the steering boot. What year is your trailvoy?
that should not of caused the rack to leak unless it already had a a leak and now your just noticing i would def go and talk to that guy about itcould replacing a inter tie rod cause a leak?
i had the one replaced on my driver side now its leaking from the rack and pinion? could the guy who did it mess something up?
