Chase Bays Power Steering Line install S13

The Build

So I finally fixed my power steering leak!      It went out my last summer in 2015 and I just never bothered to fix it. The leak was coming from the high pressure line that connected to the rack and the pump.

               Here’s a half ass side by side comparison:

But yeah had the opportunity to do it at work which made it heaps easier since the car is on lift. My friend Casey was nice enough to stay back to help out and keep me company.




So I removed the intercooler piping and whatever else was in the way.

Sorry for the lack of detailed pictures.


When I routed it like the pic of above it was kinking and the inlet pipe wouldn’t be able to fit. So Casey suggested we just flip it over:


It’s not really pretty but it works lol, I should’ve invested in Chase Bays swivel fittings..


But yeah I have power steering again!! So that’s good, next I hope I can put my LSD in soon!

Note* I noticed fluid seaping a little from the rack ;( Not sure if it’s leaking from the chase bays line or the oem line that we unbolted for clearance to tighten the new line. If it’s the chase bays one Teflon tape! LOL or if it’s the oem one then I guess I’ll have to buy another o-ring. I’ll update this post when I figure it out. 

Update* Got it sorted out and put some pumblers tape around the threads of the AN fitting that goes into the rack.

Thank you again for reading!!
