98 lude rack and pinion problem

the Lude has developed a strange screeching noise when I turn it all the way to either side...I think the boot on the rack may be the culprit.( the same noise use to come out when I had a slave cylinder problem.) I took it out and saw the boot was all torn up.

Could it be the steering rack boot? I'm getting the noise when I turn left all the way as well as when I turn right all the way.There's no power steering leak so I can't tell( unless the boot uses hydraulic fluid )

how much labour$$ am I looking to spend on it?

Re: 98 lude rack and pinion problem

my brother had a problem like this on his 300zx and to fix it was gonna cost around 8 or 900 and his was leaking, my mechanic told him to just add power steering fluid once a month or whenever it needs to postpone the problem and its been like that for months so im assuming its ok, my guess would be it would cost around the same or maybe slightly less depending on the shop and the motor. All i know is that a 300z motor is a bitch to work on, and definitely more of a pain in the ass then an H22. good luck man
