PS: the seller seem legit.
I have been looking for a steering line at the local yards, most steering systems seem bad, leaking, and torn up. I would buy a new rack, for the warranty as i wouldnt trust a car i cannot see, if you do decide to buy used, make sure the system is not open. after a car sits and the system is leaking fluid, the fluid will settle and moisture will get in and kill tge pump and rack
