New Steering Rack

My steering rack is leaking a lot of oil now and is now in need of replacing. I have been looking at websites that sold new steering. I think I found a good reliable website. But not sure yet, so I wanted to ask you guys to see what you guys think. http://shop.rackdoctor.net/6-1997-20...95-549-pre.htm I will be adding the polyurethane bushings as well. What do you guys think?

I've read mixed reviews of rackdoctor. I just replaced mine last week for the same reason. I went with OEM. My dad owned a shop and I witnessed too many failures with reman racks.

Have you considered CVJ? They only use OEM parts to reman their rack and I think they give you some cash back if you send them your core. I've gotten CVs there and they are just like new.

I just replaced mine on my 1st gen with an OEM rack from Camelback Toyota, a vendor here. Great pricing and Jorge helped out with the shipping. I also got my Energy Suspension bushings from Suspension.com
