    140 for rack & pinion paid a mechanic that works on his own charged me 140 alignment 55 not bad compared to almost 1000

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. JG (Grand Island,  Nebraska) paid $ and said:

    $700 to replace the rack. This included labor. Went to major dealership to have it done. This didn’t include alignment or anything else. They thought it was the fuel pump and replaced the fuel pump first, then found out it wasn’t the pump, so they put our old fuel pump back in and put on a new rack and said they would only charge us for the cost of a fuel pump. I think they charged us more.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  4. Debbie (Clarksville,  Indiana) paid $582 and said:

    I am blessed to know a very honest family owned auto repair shop. The mechanic performed an inspection. My car is a garage kept, town driven, 2000 Pontiac Grand AM with 152K miles on it. The recommendation was to monitor the power steering reservoir level, fill it as indicated and have the rack & pinion checked by the mechanic when I bring my car in for routine maintenance. I was quoted $582.00 for the entire replacement parts and labor. Good Honest Hard Working Americans! Thank you Worrall Family!

    $846.33 at a shop attached to a gas station – I had to use this shop as it was across the street from my house thus very convenient to not have to drive the car far away while leaking power steering fluid I took it in on a Tuesday part ordered same day repair complete the next day I was very pleased with the cost based on the quick turn around time

    Was it worth it? Yes
