    What's up tuners I got a real quick question the other day while driving I lost power steering, went home and leaked PS fluid. After examination it turns out my power steering suction connector broke off.

    Can I get the piece welded back together or is this a replacement only option? 15705665468597384526250262043214.jpg 1570566648381724346175048606379.jpg 15705665468597384526250262043214.jpg

    I bet that part's decently cheap. No reason to save the little things.

    that is repairable, but I probably wouldn't take the time to mess with it unless the part was impossible to find or crazy expensive (more than my time is worth)...
