Steering Rack Replacement Cost
Problems with the power steering control module (where applicable) can imitate problems with the steering rack. Be sure that the problem has been properly diagnosed before replacing an expensive steering rack.
A four-wheel alignment should be performed after replacing the steering rack.
The shop should flush the power steering system when replacing the power steering rack.
A failing steering rack may clunk when turning or when going over bumps.
Turning easily in one direction, but with difficulty in the other, is an indication of a problem with the steering rack.
