3rd Steering Rack

I had the first steering rack leak from the driver and passenger side boots. That steering rack was replaced under warranty. Now after a little less than a year the passenger side boot is again leaking fluid. Does/has anyone replaced their steering rack themselves? If so how difficult was it to replaced? And, did you go with the MOPAR steering rack? Thank you in advance

Re: 3rd Steering Rack

I'd make a stink about it, since it's the 2nd one.

Perhaps they might give you a deal of parts only or something.

That was the first thought and course of action. Of course the warranty was 1 year or 12k miles. Well it has been 11 months and 14k miles. That is how that stuff always works.

From the first look last night there could be some difficulty replacing the rack but I was hoping to hear some feedback from anyone with some experience.
