So I discovered my rack & pinion bushings are causing a clicking noise when I turn my steering wheel to the right. How much should this cost me to fix? I know you have to remove the whole steering column which I don't have the tools to do so how much parts and labor? I know the bushings aren't too much of a concern so I can wait to get it done. Also, my power steering pump is leaking and making a noise, what causes this and how much should it be fix? Thanks!

Check your power steering lines. They are near the battery and they possibly could have collided with each other causing a crack in the line. Same problem happened with me. Tried using a hardener to fix the leak but had to eventually buy a new line from auto zone

Here is a pic of what our PS pump looks like, shouldn't be to awful hard to find, just start at the PS reservoir and follow until you find the pump

it appears that the actual pump is leaking. so I will need a new one. now was for the rack &c pinion bushings will I need to get like a realignment for the steering column or something? because you have to physically take out the steering column and put it back in?
