Sourcing the hard lines on the back of the steering rack

Sometimes we have those moments where we think how the hell did I miss that, I'm so meticulous, and the mistake so obvious! Anyway I need the two hard lines on the back of the steering rack, I do t see them as a replacement part on the Toyota database. They appear only to come with the rack. I'd rather not remove the rack (PIA) and have considered custom bent lines but would prefer a stock perfect fit instead.

Picture to follow.

Thank you

I will be replacing my OEM rack with another OEM in a week or so.

You can have the old lines if you want them. They are in good shape (assuming I don't do something stupid when pulling the rack off. Just pay shipping.

I will keep it in mind, thank you. I don't recall the price difference but I've had great luck with steering products from toyotasteering.com. The removal is fairly straight forward, just need the ball joint separator, and some patience.

Thank you

I replaced both 44418A, and 44418B. Like in the photo above. Now the steering rack is from a company called ToyotaSteering.com and is very nice refurb. But the line and thread size should not be different.

Sourcing the hard lines on the back of the steering rack

Sometimes I think it's just me! The thread on top came out of my steering rack and is 14x1.5mm and is not standard for this application.

#1 I called ToyotaSteering and they said this was a new u it sourced from China.....have had no returns so had no spare parts for me.

#2 I went to Napa, they make lines but could not duplicate the nipple on this tubing nor the 14x1.5 fitting.

#3 Went to Hydraulic Supply Co and they scratched their heads a bit then said they could made some things with a series of adapters.....the BLUE hose looks to be 1/4", w/o purchasing a new rack this might be the best option.

I wonder if I cut the 14x1.5mm fittings off and mic'd the inside diameter the see if the 12x2? Could be cut into the back of it.

Or

Find a fitting that acts as an adapter and allows 14x1.5mm male with the 12x2? Into it.

Get a used rack off Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market for $50 and take the lines off of it. You will most likley need a 1999 or older rack to match up.
