I need my rack and pinion replaced. What is a fair price to pay? on 2008 Saturn Outlook

Is this something that should be done only at a dealership repair shop?

did you get it replaced? is this the rack an pinion for the power steering? they just quoted me $1600 at the dealership. They said the power steering gear needed to be change and not only the power steering pump
any good tech should be able to handle this. approx 500.00
Thank you so much! I had been quoted $950, utilizing discounts
a factory rack would be that much. its a 3hr labor plus alignment plus a rebuilt rack. they range in price depending on where avail
