I saved this post about 'groaning' or 'moooing' noises. When I had a 87
CS5000, the strut bearings going bad would make a clicking sound, but no
groaning. Maybe this info will help....

The leak is probably your problem Pantelis.  The symptoms you describe
like you might have blown or weeping the Hipressure hose to the rack.  You
need to peel back the protective foam from the outside of the hose, and you
will find fluid underneath.  If you don't have the correct pressure at the
rack, the cow sounds are what you hear.  Also, warn out or dirty fluid gets
trapped in the screens of some of the banjo bolts, which also prevents
correct pressure from getting to the rack itself (these are located on the
pump and the bomb, not the rack itself).  Also ck to make sure that your
bellows on the rack are intact, and, if you find no external fluid leaks,
seals in the rack are most likely bad....  To ck this, a small hole into the
bottom of the bellows should identify the culprit.
