I felt the same way recently. Went to HF to get a 6 point 18mm socket. Looked all over and could only find a deep socket, the 6 point sets all excluded the 18mm for some reason. Went over to the impact tools and there it was.
Took it for a quick spin around my hood and drove perfectly fine. In fact I’m now convinced that I’ve had this leak happening over the period of the last couple weeks where my steering was harder to navigate in my driveway and now their things been buttoned up, the steering is effortless. I guess I got used to hard steering and just didn’t think about it until I looked for leaks. Crossing fingers this is done the job and couldn’t have done it with everybody in this thread.
