hydroboost rebuild kit

My hydrobooster is leaking at the manifold on the power steering side... since a new manifold is pretty expensive is there a rebuild kit??? Tried looking in the sponsor websites but can't find one... any help is greatly appreciated...

A rebuilt hydroboost from RockAuto is $162, plus you can get a 5% discount. The problem with rebuilding them is that if there's one nick or gouge in the internal parts (the name escaped me right now), you've wasted all of your time and money rebuilding it.

I would buy the $162 unit with the warranty, and at least then you'll have a little peace of mind.

yeah I stumbled across rockauto.com last night after I started the thread...cheaper than anywhere I'd looked. from what I found I may have to replace the power brake booster due to a faulty secondary seal...which is the general area the leak is...buying the new assembly would be the better way to go as you suggested...
