I’ve recently noticed a small leak towards the front passenger side of my LX570 (2008) and it took me almost a month to figure out where it was coming from. It looks like my power steering cooler lines are leaking. I have a 2008 LX with 150k miles. Being a North East truck I feel happy it make it this long...... I did a quick search and saw some 100 guys discussing replacing the cooler but did not see anytnjng in regards to a 200/LX570.
Any suggestions/words of wisdom for replacements? Looks like OEM is about $500 and I see some “OEM” for just under $300. Would an aftermarket (more generic) cooler work/be cheaper/last longer? I’m leaning towards the real OEM thing and getting another decade+ from the setup.

With stuff like this I tend to lean toward factory parts. Shop around and you can find lower prices. My go-to is Olathe parts.

I can't tell from the picture (on my phone) but also make sure your lines are good. I have a lot of corrosion on my lines (also a northeast rig). I suspect this is where mine will eventually fail.
