If you are going to be pulling and re-installing the slave cylinder yourself, you should consider rebuilding it yourself. Rebuild kits are available at reasonable prices, and step-by-step instructions are plentiful on the net. Pull the cylinder, disassemble and check the condition of the parts. If it looks good, you can buy a rebuild kit, needed tools (snap ring pliers etc) and paint for less than you'd spend on a reman. You'll know it's done right, plus you can use the tools and paint again. I just did this as part of a front suspension rebuild and it is not complicated. My 2c

Thank you. After I remove it I may take it apart. The car has been in storage for a while. When I started it, the fluid was leaking out badly. I will need to view old one first. Thanks for your reply.

You can only replace the external seals on the power steering ram. In your case that may be enough. If the piston binds or has a lot of pitting you will be better off getting another cylinder. You can't get to the internals of the ram without cutting it apart.

VB&P sells a stainless insert for the PS ram but you would need the tools and talent to install it.
