Cardone's Remanufacturing Process Includes:
  • All new spool valve seals and rack donut seals are installed to eliminate internal leaks and ensure reliable performance (where applicable)
  • 100% new O.E.- style o-rings and lip seals ensure leak-free and long-lasting performance (where applicable)
  • Racks are surfaced to precise specifications to prevent leaking between chambers and extend unit life
  • 100% hydraulic testing for proper flow, leakage and performance ensures perfect fit and function
  • Protective coating applied to each unit to extend the life of the unit (where applicable)
  • Valve housings have polished micro-finish sleeves for durability (where applicable)
Installation Tips
  • Replace Power Steering Pressure and Return Hoses when replacing the rack & pinion. Steering hoses can degrade internally and cause contamination in the power steering system, which can damage the new rack & pinion
  • Completely flush the system with an OE approved Power Steering Fluid or Automatic Transmission Fluid prior to installation (the correct type of fluid is noted on the reservoir cap and in your owner's manual). Flushing the system is critical to prevent system contamination and failure
  • Consider installing a Power Steering Filter on the Power Steering Return Hose to prevent system contamination and extend the life of the power steering components
  • Bleed the system to prevent noise and extend the life of the steering components (this may require a vacuum pump and Power Steering Bleeder Kit)
