RACK AND PINION

2000 Dodge Stratus

2000 Dodge Stratus 95000 miles

a small metal tube has rusted out on the steering rack unit and leaks fluid. Garage says entire rack unit needs to be replaced for $800. Can't they simply replace the metal tube and not the entire unit?

Hi there,

by the time you remove the rack, dismantle and replace the balance tube, you may as well do the full job, I am sure that if it leaked in 6-8 months time you would not be happy,
