Default Rack and Pinion Problem

Today I had my 93 SL1 up on a lift at school and i noticed that Power Steering fluid has been leaking out of the rubber boot on the top of the rack where the steering shaft goes in. I think its the spool valve gone bad pushing fluid up through the dust boot. I called napa and a saturn dealership and the only thing either could offer was a new rack. Any body know of any other options or a dirt cheap rack in decent shape. Id be willing to rebuild it with a kit but i think mine is too far gone.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Used is a good option in your case. I had good service from MS recycling when I needed a precat. They may not be "dirt cheap" so if you could find a Pick your Part it would be cheaper but one has to remove it
