    Power steering pump nightmare/ need help

    Power steering pump failed and went to go check FCP for one and the only only one available is a bmw genuine LF-20 for over $400. I didnít think it made sense to get an LF-20 when I can upgrade to a 30. So I called ecs and a Meyle LF-30 doesnít ship till expected March which was confirmed in the phone. So I found an equivalent on ecs for $270 which I felt is still a bit pricey. Do I need to upgrade the lines to compensate for the LF-30 as soon as I switch or can I get away with the oem for a little. For a upgrade service kit and the pump together from ecs comes out to 573.21 I can add my cart if anyone wants to see. Need help getting my car back asap!!

    Correct me if Iím wrong but is that not kind of expensive for the pump? Are there other alternatives that are just as worth it?

    It is on the high side but LUK who manufactures the pump for bmw either stopped producing them or they are on back order.

    You might be able to find old new stock on eBay and same some money that way.

    You're going to want to get an LF-30 WITH the brackets. The brackets are different and when you go to order the LF-30, it will not come with it. Don't ask me how I know LOL

    What I did is bought a used LF-30 off ebay with the brackets just to take the brackets lol. I do have a used LF-30 with brand new seals if you're interested. You do need the hose. The fitting at the end that goes into the LF-30 is different. It'll fit, but will leak. Again, don't ask me how I know lol
