what's your planned source for a rack? I guess for low budget its best to get a dry junk yard one if you have the time. I put a rock auto rebuilt one in but am waiting for it to fail. would like to try to rebuild one but its hard to get a kit that fits or is any good or inspires confidence. Usually its just the seal on the ends but suspect loose tolerances compromise the seal. Its one of those jobs that show you how many tools you dont have that you need. not a good job to try and finish over the weekend so you can get to work on Monday.
