    Haha my first car was a 88 lx and the rack and pinion leaked so much I ended up giving up on replacing the fluid everyday. The last few months that I drove it was without power steering, let me just say, hopefully you never have to drive it under 20 mph cause it takes A LOT of getting "used" to...good times! haha

    Oh and about the belt, I'm pretty sure if you get all the delete kits (pulleys) for each part you remove, you should be able to use the same size belt, and if not just go park outside of your favorite auto part store and put the belt on in the parking lot, if it doesn't fit, take it back inside and try another one. I would order the pulleys if it was me, but Good Luck

    use a string to measure it up and then goto the parts place and tell them you need a 6 rib in w/e the length it is
