cant buy part anywhere! not even dealer! HELP!

Ok! i have a huge dilemma! i am trying to purchase a power steering pipe assembly, number 17 from my attached pic, and i cant find this part anywhere. the part is in back order from the dealers so the dealers cant sell me the part at all . They also dont sell this part in the junk yards cus this car rarely gets junked. so where can i go to get this part? i went to an auto part store and they said that they can fabricate the part for me. would this work?!?!?!?!? any suggestions anyone?!

Re: cant buy part anywhere! not even dealer! HELP!

i actually do have the part laying around since i deleted PS, but its such a long pipe that the box needed to ship it in would be huuugee and would prolly cost 5x more to ship it than what its worth.

Re: cant buy part anywhere! not even dealer! HELP!

have you tried majestic? Dealerships are far to lazy these days to locate parts for customers if they aren't doing the work... I find it hard to believe the lines arent in stock considering my F/R gas and brake lines were.

Re: cant buy part anywhere! not even dealer! HELP!

You could, But for 62 bucks I would rather use original equipment less headaches for me that way. You could also fab one up yourself with hardline purchased from autozone if you know how to use a flairing tool and mini tube bender.

Re: cant buy part anywhere! not even dealer! HELP!

twokexlv6coupe i am actually talking to someone about the part right now cus he just totalled the car and parting it out but if it doesnt go through, i am definitely considering buying the part from you for 10 + shipping to 60714, exactly what the guy i am talking with is selling it for. how much do you think shipping will be for this thing. its fairly long but really skinny.

LOL exactly...The dealers are too lazy. Plus if the said it is on back order, that dosnt mean they cant get it. It just means they cant get it next day, it may take a week or two, (there may be no new ones in the country, and have to get it shipped from Japan) I see this all the time on odd parts or parts that dont sell frequently. back order just means it may take a while to ship.
