    i know on my 98 mustang cobra it wasn't a hard job.. i think on our cars it is a little more time consuming, it does sound like the rack though if it is usually loud, are you sure you have enough fluid in the system?? is it old and burnt up? also i know lucas makes a powersteering additive that really helped a leak on my bmw 540 a few years back. i do believe you need to drop your k member down if i can remember correctly.

    yea the fluid is full, but it feels like the r&p isnt circulating the fluid cause its hard to turn the wheel sometimes when the car is warmed up
