Leaky Power Steering Boot.

Anyone ever rebuild a Power steering rack. My boot had a rip and fluid poured out of it. I am not sure fluid should be in there. Does anyone know if I should replace the boot or do a complete rebuild. At 700 PSI in a hard turn, I doubt the boot is designed to hold fluid.

I have a 2001 95 Aero. I bought a replacement from a 99 95, looks the same, body part same number, but gear box at a slightly different angle and will not fit. Aero brochure says enhanced sport steering, so perhaps that is the differenct between other 95s, a different gear box.

If a rebuild, does anyone know how or have a link. I believe I need to replace the bushing inside the housing right near where the boot attaches. I have not been able to find an info, but have an edlemen rebuild kit.

Most likely the rip in the boot allowed allowed dirt in which caused the leak. Only leaks I've ever found in a 9-5 rack happened that way. I usually just replace the rack, never tried a rebuild myself (I like a warranty cuz that rack replacement sucks)
