[Steering & Suspension] Power Steering Linkage
#1
Hi all,

Whilst I was changing my Cat I notice that the rubber boot on the off side(Drivers side) of the power steering servo was detached & needs replacing. I could not see if there is a bearing in the servo end so was wondering if anyone knows about it & if it is an easy job to do. Could this be the source of the grinding I was hearing after going over sleeping policemen?
I also noticed that the rubber bush on the lower arm is split & also needs replacing & a rubber bush in the firewall is split & needs replacing on the nearside(passenger side) I think the left hand lower arm is attached to this.

Cheers, pitpan

After reading up, I think this might be the track rod that goes into the power steering hydraulics
