Bad rack

How far can one drive on interstate with minimal turning with a bad rack? Non OEM seals are leaking both sides

Very little if any power assist.

Thanks

Power assist (or the lack of) is really only noticeable/necessary at speeds below 20-30 mph. The slower you are going the harder it's going to be to steer. So for highway/interstate speeds you aren't going to notice a lack of power steering assist. I would recommend taking off your power steering pump belt if your pump hasn't started whining/groaning/complaining yet. If you let the pump get too low on fluid you'll burn it up and have to replace it.

EDIT: Put "above 20-30 mph" when I meant below. Oops!
