Re: I don't think the ABS light on has anything to do with the hard....
Well sounds like the seals are blown in the rack if oil is leaking out the bellows(rack) boot. Racks are cheap enough.
R&R is....OK, I mean I've done racks on non turbo 5kq's, turbo Q's, but by far the biggest PITA was my ol 93 V8 Green Monster. No idea why, cause before that rack the biggest PITA was my ol 90 200tqa. cause of all the **** back there...so you would figure that the V8's would be a piece of cake..WRONG.
I even did one without a motor in it, & it was a PITA..may I add ROYAL!!! The racks are o-ring seals, so there is no step..or shoulder to guid the 1st bit of threads on the bolt. It's just a pain.
If you want a how too shoot me a mail & we can discuss it a bit.
But I tell you I'd do 20 the same way, & love every minute of it :-) Gotta be crazy. I know so many V8 listers who own more than one...it sure is an addiction! The V8's are fantastic cars!
But honestley you should R&R the bomb & rack at the same time. Set at least 1 day aside to repair. Use the proper Pentosin 11s, & you should be fine.
To bleed the system you'll need to jack both sides of the front end up & run the car turning the wheel full lock to pass & driver sides mutipull times.
& ehhhhh, emotions of the heart are very complicated. just take a deep breath :-)

To cure the divorce issue... throwing the ex from a cruise ship seems to be the 'in' thing these days. Can't convict without a body, international waters... yadda yadda yadda...
Wish I'd had that advice!
