Intrepid 8-cyl

I have a 1996 Dodge Intrepid I bought in 1998 I have had numerous steering problems with this vehicle and have spent much money to fix this car. The bushings have been replaced, the bearings have been replaced, the power steering pump has been replaced, the steering hoses have been replaced, all this was done at under 55,000 miles and luckily gefore my fiance and my children were seriously hurt in an acident due to steering lose or control. These problems totaled around 2,500.to fix. Now we are having the same problems again with the car having 90,000 miles now the power steering pump is out again and the rack and pinion is out and it is impossible to steer. We are a low income family so trade the car in is out of the question and getting it fixed right away is sometimes not possible. Just by pure luck I was looking for prices of rack and pinions and I just stummbled across this web site and I am glad I did.
