I a broken spring on front driver side of my car. There is a squeaking grinding type noise when i turn to the LEFT only. I just replaced the power steering pump the problem did not correct itself. Now I question if it is the rackapinion or if it is just the spring. If someone with more insight could help me i would appreciate it.

the spring must be replaced first. as far as the noise, the lower ball joint or outer tie rod end are more than likely making your noise. the power steering pump and rack just assist the movement of the linkage. Roy
