Need Source for Rack and Pinion

I have a 1993 N/A Mr2 that I need a rack and pinion assemble for. Noticed seal kits are still out there but I'm not finding a complete assembly. The shop that has taken care of it for over a decade plus installed the current one about 5 years ago. He'll warranty it but his original source doesn't have any either. Any ideas. Checked Rock Auto and the usual suspects but nada. Is there a difference between the Turbo equipped cars rack assembly vs. the N.A

TIA

You'll probably have to buy a used one and rebuild it.

Thanks! Had checked with the local parts stores and when push came to shove the units aren't available thru them. Even the link showed it out of stock at O'Reily's. So far Detroit Axle is looking like the route to go even if I have to send my unit back to them and wait for it. It's "weeping" now so no panic just wanted to get ahead of it. I rebuilt a lot of aviation hydraulics over the years, since the seal kits are easy to get I may just do it myself. Only difference is on the aircraft gear I had a test bench

As long as the rebuild kit is the correct one.

I believe Cardone offers rebuild service, but turnaround can be a while. So if you have the correct seal kit, the unit is in shape for rebuild, and you can rebuild then that’s probably the best.
