Unless the $250 is trivial (and with nathan, I bet it isn't), I don't 
see a reason to do it if the rack wasn't exhibiting any problems. 
Without looking in the FSM, which is in my garage, I don't know if there 
are any bench tests you can do to check the health of the rack. The 
bellows are just dust covers, and I'd just replace those, check over the 
rack well, and leave it.
