    Default Wanted: 505 power steering rack for STI

    Hello,

    I just wondered whether anyone had a 505 power steering rack for an STI for sale. I want one in good condition that doesn't leak

    Anyone who could help me with this impossible request would be greatly appreciated.

    Most s/h ones would be an unknown quantity.
    I remember Lewin at Peugeotspares, 33556624 had them last year when I was looking. Sorry I can't remember a price.

    EDIT:...it's the Power steering ram I am talking about.

    can i just add that the racks don't leak unless it's the valve itself on the rack that the column connects to

    the other part of the power steering is separate from the rack and it is a cylinder that assists in steering the car

    the racks in these cars are a simple rack and pinion system with external power assist

    i hope this helps people in the future and it may also save some people time and money in the future when these rip off merchants called mechanics tell you that you need a new rack when all you may need are some new seals or a new cylinder

    the racks can wear out but these are a pure mechanical part, no hydraulics in them at all

    The rack has worn out I think because the one of the boots on one side is broken and I think that the whole rack should be replaced. The seal kit is located on the rack itself and unless you know how to fix it then you are no better off.
    Is it hard to change them yourself?
