I've used two "remaned" autozone units, they were both ATSCO the first one leaked from the internal rack seals into the boots/bellows upon initial start up. The second lasted 4 months or so, approx 2500 miles. I gave up and eventually I replaced it with a ford unit from a junkyard, which lasted 2 years before I scrapped the car due to motor, trans, and body issues. To be honest your betters off buying a low mileage non-leaking ford rack from a junkyard and painting it black with spray paint. It would look the same as the ATSCO unit and probably last the same amount of time or longer and cost a third of the price. I know it's expensive, but if you can find one and afford it buy a motorcraft unit.
