If they're available FCP Euro would be the place to check. Just looked and they don't show them, TRW is being cleared out at $109 and Hudson is out of stock. Lemforder and BMW are $200 and $220.

The steering on my e46 is very heavy, at least compared to my e36 and my 95 Chrysler Concorde backup car. I don't have any more leaks after replacing the PS pressure line.
