Toyota-Lexus-Scion Power Steering Rack

Toyota’s power steering racks tend to hold up pretty well. The commonest reason for failure is that eventually the seals start leaking fluid. In this case (with an external leak) the power steering still works, but you’re losing your power steering fluid to the ground.

Occasionally the valving will fail in such a way that power steering is lost in either one or both directions.

When they do fail, I strongly prefer to replace them either with one provided by Toyota, Lexus, or Scion, or from the suppliers that provide for Toyota, Lexus, and Scion.

New or remanufactured—either way’s fine by me—but I’ve seen to many short lived aftermarket power steering racks to want to go the aftermarket route.
