Hello FJ-ers ... first post ... please be gentle ... :)

I have a leak in the power-steering system ... all of the lines are leaking actually! I got the lines swapped out between
the reservoir and the pump. And of course the lines from the rack to the pump need replacing too but Toyota apparently
doesn't sell those separately. (And buying an entire rack and pinion for those lines seems less than ideal)

Anybody ever handle those two lines? Any words of advice!

Thanks in advance
Mark

Welcome! We don’t flame around here 😊 I replaced my rack and pump not long ago, used OE, and neither came with the lines...reused mine. Maybe speak with a Toyota dealship about part numbers for the lines? GL!

See, that is the thing ... the dealership doesn't have part numbers for the lines as they don't sell them outside of a full rack. In fact, if you look at the rack diagram, there are part numbers for the grommits around the two lines but no parts for the lines themselves. (Incidentally, the dealer wanted $2400 to swap the full rack out and perform an alignment!!! Hence why I drove away ... :)

Thanks

Hmmmm well maybe get on the phone with Roman at Toyota of Cool Springs, a Forum sponsor and good guy who’s helped a lot of us find parts. The database dealerships have is way more extensive than what we mortals get access to. Tell him you’re a forum member for a discount 😉

You forgot to state what year model your FJ is ... the part number for the pair of composite hard/soft lines connected to the rack is 44410-35770.

This is for '10 through '14 models, and the '07-'09 models are likely different.

There may be some problem with current availability of this hose assembly from Toyota, but I think ContiTech has hose assemblies for both early and late model FJs.

Apologies ... it is a 2010. The picture above are lines between the reservoir and the pump. I need the lines that are actually on the rack and pinion themselves (You can see that the line end grommits have part numbers but not the lines themselves ... sigh)

Thanks

Hello FJ-ers ... I am in a bit of a pickle and I am sure you gurus have solved this!! Here it goes ...

My 2010 Army Green (color not important but I think it is boss) FJ is leaking PSF pretty much everywhere. (I am just outside of Boston so my baby sees some pretty tough road salt/sand) I have the PS lines swapped out at this point but the lines on the rack and pinion are leaking. Here they are in the pic:

As you can see (and probably know) there are part numbers for the lines grommits but none for the lines themselves. And with all my tireless
searching it doesn't appear that you can just get those parts. Of course the dealer wants $2400+ to swap the entire rack (plus alignment) when
really I just need (2) $5 lines!!!!

I of course could do the obvious, which is buy a full rack, keep it for a rainy day and simply steal the lines to solve the immediate problem. Of course
with that route I would be back in the soup if I ever had to put the new rack on the truck.

Words of wisdom? (Thanks so much in advance ... first post to a non-newbie thread!!!)

Find an independent Toy 4x4 specialist. They will know best inexpensive way to retrofit.

The return line can be adapted to reinforced rubber with proper care and routing.
The pressure line can be made up by a hydraulic supply business.

The hoses are available separately from Toyota in Canada.
The pressure hose is ridiculously priced at 700.00 IIRC.

since those lines you need are steel, and have a unique crimp on each end (for the o ring), not sure if someone can simply make their own (normally, steel lines are super easy to hand make, or buy in pre-cut length), but that crimp for the o ring I've not seen a consumer tool to make them

Idea: buy a set from a salvage yard, and make sure to paint them real well before assembly, and coat with wax to further help prevent future corrosion.
