    Hey guys,

    Im going to replace the steering rack on my 2008
    I (admittedly) bought a remaned Detroit Axle one

    It looked very clean when I unboxed it, but i found a deformation in one of the fittings. I know these are high pressure hydraulic lines, so is this a no no?

    I havnt contacted them about it yet
    Thanks!

    I would go with your gut on this one. It would be no fun to have to replace the power steering rack twice!

    Send it back, pretty typical of their junk from what I have seen and heard
