I have the steering rack out of my 2006 montero limited (hell of a job getting it out, but that's another story) and have a question regarding the replacement. Take a look at the picture with the new and old part side by side. Notice the hard line "feed tubes" and how they don't route to the same spot on the valve housing. I called customer service where I ordered the new rack from and they said don't use it and sent me a replacement. The problem is that the replacement is built the same way (doesn't match the original). I called again and they basically said I'm SOL and are going to give me a refund. The problem is that I need a solution and I'm going on 2 weeks of being without a vehicle due to this part and potential manufacturing defect. My question is - does the routing of these lines matter, or is this a non-issue? I don't know the theory of operation on rack and pinion steering so I need some help understanding the impact of the lines and the order of them on the valve housing. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated!
