A little update. I picked up a used bumper, bumper cover (white- so will need to be painted if I want to use it), five OEM rims, lug nuts, three good defender tires, and the radiator cover in Portland, OR yesterday. The Seller of these parts pimped out his GX 470 to be some Mad Maxx looking ride, and replaced these parts with aftermarket parts. He had to take the tires off the wheels to transport them home, if the tires were mounted his vehicle could not handle five tire mounted wheels.
The SUV had no power steering, yet I saw no damage to the rack, or anything else. The power steering reservoir looked at the proper level, yet when I took the cap off the reservoir was empty. I am a huge proponent of non-discolored fluid reservoirs, and this is the reason why. After putting fluid in the reservoir, I started the engine and turned the wheel left and right, but no power steering. But found a huge mess of power steering on the floor, at the opposite end from the fluid reservoir.
An inspection identified one of the hoses to the power steering pump came off (see picture - circled in white). I have no idea how the power steering line came off, yet the spring tensioner clamp was still on the end of the hose. Placed the hose and spring tensioner clamp back on the power steering pump, added trans fluid, started up the engine- no leak and power steering is working. Either this was removed during an inspection, or a freak occurrence. I will say it was brutal getting the spring tensioner clamp back on. The space was super tiny and very hard to reach. I have a spring tensioner clamp tool that allows remote access, without that I would likely have had to take a lot of extra things off the car.
On a side note, the pads on the floor are pads for little dogs to go the bathroom in the house. They are my new favorite "shop supply". I had no idea I had a leak, and where would one put a drain pan without knowing the location of the leak, I love these pads.
