    If your gonna replace, you need to know which rack you have. There are only two, that I know of.

    One is a normal and the other is speed sensitive.

    Easiest way to find our is to remove the ABS fuse from the fuse box. Drive around the block. Does the steering seem very hard to turn? If so, you have the speed sensitive.

    The best way is to check to see if an electrical connection goes to where the steering shaft goes into the rack.

    I went to body shop for diagnostic, and told rack and pinion....cost about 1k[at first].....went through insurance policy, estimate 4k...body shop said they fixed it, paid 3k, but wheel locking up a bit and car squeaking.
    Took car back, and said replaced rack[1st one was bad] now telling me to see dealer
    I paid him ...he said he could fix it, what do I do now?
    got rental through ins. policy, but been almost 30 days-time's up for another rental , who is gonna pay for repair of my 03 CTS with 41k miles[hit curb causing damage]
