Sorry for the extremely delayed response. I haven't been on in a while.

Yes. The steering rack operates on hydraulic pressure. It works because fluid cannot be compressed. If there was only air in it it would work very very poorly, if at all, and it would burn out quickly.

Either way, you could get a rod thrown in both.........
