Subaru Forester Steering Rack

2 posts in this topic

Good Day mates, 

  I have a 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5 that has a steering issue. After visiting the workshop today, mec told me that the Steering rack kaput and power steering fluid is leaking, if change new one around 1-2k SGD. However my forester only left around 8 months COE.... So I feel it isn't justified to purchase a new rack.. Hence looking for advice on how I can find a used power steering rack(?) or a good workshop that has such experiences in dealing such stuff. 

Thank you

Both are diff item. U need a steering rack and a power steering pump. Rack wise u can try asking for used or get from those that are scrapping their car. Pump can juz look out for bros dekitting. Maybe u should go for another opinion. Know that your car going to scrap, no Mech will give u such suggestion. If anyone have any brain or biz mind, they will definitely recommend used item to last u thru that few months.
