... IMO the bomb can be changed pretty easily independently of the pump or
the rack ...

It is a very simple matter to test the bomb ... shut off the car and test
how many times you can press the brake pedal and still feel assist.  If that
number is anywhere less than 10 then you should consider having the bomb
done too.  You can tell when the assist goes away ... the pedal becomes hard
as a rock ...
