The seal on my rack and pinion is leaking where the steering wheel shaft
enters the box. I am told by the Lexus dealer that they need to replace the
entire rack and pinion, as rebuilding is not allowed, and parts are not
available from Lexus. This is to cost over $700.
Any ideas how to do this cheaper?
Thanks,

John

Have you tried seeing if a local mechanic can get salvaged parts and rebuild
it for you?

Try a Google search for "rack and pinion" you may find someone who
rebuilds these things - YOURS isn't the ONLY on that's failed.

Rebuilt rack and pinions are available from The Steering Store.

Re: 1990 LS400 Power Steering Leak

So if you have a seal on your rack and pinion, all you need to do is
take some fish and coax the seal out from under the car. It is probably
good to have the zoo people there to take the seal to the zoo when you
get it out. No need for anything expensive!
