Okay, how bad is it when powersteering fluid is dripping from the cable tied flexi rubber thing on the end of the rack?
I'm saying bad.
A quick opinion would be nice, but it looks like no dragging for me tonight :evil:
I'd feel like an a**hole if I dumped fluid all over the strip...
Goddammit!!!

Yeah, just been through that myself. The seals on the end of the rack are leaking, and its just bypassing them there. I went for a reco rack. Apparently you need a ford specific tool to disassemble the rack? I couldnt be bothered, so just went for a reco!

I was quoted $350 to get mine reco'd so I picked one up at the wreckers for $80, just make sure the wrecker will give some warranty the wrecker I went to was 3 months for all leaks.

Yay, it wasn't the rack!
It was the pressure sensor thing.
It wasn't dripping, but spraying power steering fluid at high pressure all down my chassis rail.
Ripped the f**k out, put in a blocked of gas fitting to blank it out, and off to the drags I went!
Steering feels a lot better now too...
