You will need a seal kit for the rack, save yourself the hassle of pulling the rack apart and get a change-over job, then all you will need is a wheel alignment, or you could go to pick and pay and find one that hasnt been leaking......................yet???

Cheers

Sons car had a leak, ended up being the nut on the return line out of the rack had loosened.Oil had even ran forward to the frame just below the steering pump which confused the matter for a while.

Sounds exactly like what my EB was doing and that was leaking from the switch. I put a new one in that fixed it until that switch went as well.
