Hello! My '90 legacy's steering rack or steering gear (whatever you want to call it) is leaking really bad out of where the steering shaft enters. Soooooo, is there any way to replace this seal easily? Is this a sign of bigger problems with this part?

some excellent information in this thread, with links to others about parts, assembling, etc:

includes a link to this very nice write up that i have never seen before of a full on Subaru rebuild:
although I think he mentions that these rarely fail so he's not going to touch it!!

used racks are cheap and usually not hard to find a dry one.for used ones:

I found a guy on Craigslist parting a similar legacy out and he only wanted $45 for his....Sounds like a deal to me!
