Hi all

My steering box is broken in a 75 series diesel landcruiser ute. Ie. it's leaks fluid everywhere and the fluid needs to be refilled every hour.

Can anyone recommend a mechanic they have used for this type of work in Brisbane? My preference would be southside.

I have heard a couple of recommendations for moorooka automotive (who seem pretty pricey) and QDAD (who seem a fair bit cheaper) 'on the grapevine' and in prior posts here, but i was hoping people could give me their own recommendation either on those places, or their recommended mechanic for this sort of work. Also, I would appreciate it if someone could give me some idea as to the sort of $$ range that I would be looking at that would be great!

Try Pearson Automotive in Milton . I got them to carry out repairs on my son's Rav4 . Seemed to be quick and reasonably priced . They have a web site with phone No's etc

Driveline Services at Archerfield are good- . I've taken my 80 series there for a few bits and pieces. Give them a ring and I'm sure they will be happy to give you an idea re: how long the job might take and an estimated price.

i've had my power steering pump on my 105 series Landcruiser replaced by QDAD as it was leaking big time just last year. due to it being so common a leak they had a rebuilt unit sitting on the shelf ready to go, so chances are they'll have the same for you, maybe give them a call and see what they say, and ask about a price aswell.
