Power steering question
My p/s rack is leaking really bad and it is the bottom one in this
picture, anyone know if the top one in the picture can be used instead ?

Power steering question
if the rack has the same lenghts everywhere as the original and fits right in the middle of the crossmember, you can use it.
but why not just take apart the old one and replace the worn seals?

I had considered repairing mine but it looks like a bit of a nightmare
job tbh
Do you know different ?
Is it a straightforward repair do you know ?

Having just reduced the amount of caster angle so that I can drive my car
the steering is actually not too heavy now so I may just fit a manual rack back in while I repair the p/s one.
