Re: power steering leak on my 86 prelude =/ someone help

I just had mine up on stands for the same issue. Autozone sells a rebuild kit for the PS rack I think it was like 70 bucks. you can buy them rebuilt for a little less than 200. I opted for the cheaper route of removing the already frayed belt and going with manual steering since this car just sits under a cover anyway. BIG difference in the way it drives. Getting the rack out isn't as
much a PITA as just getting to it to remove it, It looks like the front part of the exhaust needs to be unbolted and some other things that would probably take an air wrench at the very least. It's on my list of things to do, when I run out of things to do. Hope that helps.
