    Defective new OEM steering rack?

    Steering rack - what else to fix "while you're in there"?

    Well, at just over 180k my steering rack is starting to leak pretty heavily. I'm going to do the lift-engine method and replace it. Anything else I should consider checking/replacing "while I'm in there"? Plan: New OEM steering rack OEM steering rack bushing 555 Outer tie rods

    Power Steering Pump Help

    Hey All, Alright, bear with me as I'm sure there have been some newbie mistakes I need calling out on. I noticed the stock PS Pump on my 60 had sprung a leak at the shaft and was slowly spraying ATF all over the engine bay and ordered a reman replacement from Rock Auto. Finally got the "new"...

    Service Shop in Los Angeles region?

    So after doing the timing belt/pulleys/front axle rebuild/etc/etc myself, next up is the steering rack (oil drips, steering is questionable and I've got about 223k on the current rack). Turns out, I'm not too interested in doing that job myself (lifting the engine sounds... terrible). Does...

    Can a LC power steering rack work on a 99 LX?

    The steering rack on my lx is leaking slowly. Had to top up every now and then. Since I am planning to keep it for a couple of years, I decided to replace it. I did some research and of course the oem ones are the best way to go, but the Lexus dealer asked $1000 for the part. I found someone on...

    Steering rack or ?

    03 Land Cruiser Last week my power steering started making noise, so I popped the hood and the reservoir was low. Added ATF and it was fine. Today the same thing happened. I crawled underneath the truck, and there is ATF dripping through the driver side of the skid plate. I haven't pulled the...

    RTH request: Steering rack fluke or impending doom?

    Looking for some real time advice from Cruise Moab. Yesterday I discovered that the end of my ds steering boot had popped off and apparently puked out some fluid. The reservoir is full, there is NO active leaking, and the steering is fine with no odd behaviors. I reset the clamp and the end...

    Steering rack story

    It looks like my steering rack is going. Some oil seemed to seep into the boots on both sides: It's not bad, the boots are just wet/oily - no fluid on my driveway, no drop in fluid level either. It's been like that for a long time. One funny thing is, in April 2014, when the LC had about 107k...

    Is this steering rack new or remanufactured?

    I just received an order from Olathe Toyota that included my rack, part number 44250-60050 at $545.54. The box has the correct part number on the sticker (no stickers on the part), but cast into the part in a couple of places is the number 60020. Their does seem to be a 44250-60020 rack, but I...

    Steering rack movement

    Just had the rack replaced with a brand new oem toyota rack and new tie rod ends as well as the steering hoses. Things feel great but I have a question. With the old rack you could see the whole rack shifting side to side visibly when turning the steering left and right. Moved maybe 1/4 inch or...

    Well it happened to me, steering rack went

    Started to notice some little oil drops on my garage floor, but didn't think much of it. Then I found a small puddle and decided to investigate. Lo and behold, the passenger side of the steering rack was covered in gunk and dripping. I guess after 160k its not completely unexpected. I had the...

    Attention Vendors: Suspension Overhaul Kits?

    I've seen dozens of threads pop up over the past year but still have never seen a suspension overhaul "kit" option. I don't mean one giant, expensive kit, but as I'm getting ready to do my steering rack on my '99, I find myself thinking I may as well overhaul the bushings for everything there...

    Steering wheel pulls at 40+ mph

    Hey folks, I recently had the steering rack replaced on my 2004 LC. When I got it back, the steering wheel alignment seemed fine at low speeds, but as soon as I took it up above about 40mph, it pulled pretty hard to the left (had to turn the steering wheel almost 90 degrees to keep the wheels...

    Steering wheel shaking at highway speeds after new tires

    Hi folks: I just changed up to BFG KO2 285/75 R16 from the stock tire size and got them installed at America's Tire. On the way home I noticed a lot of steering shake at highway speeds! The shaking was a lot - had to drive in the slow lane. This doesn't happen when idle or at speeds below...
