2007 Chevy Malibu Steering Rack and Pinion Replacement

4007 Views 15 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  smithluke52
Hello all,
I brought my car in for an alignment (slight drift, just replace rear shocks, front struts, power steering torque sensor) and was told they cannot do the alignment due to the power steering rack being loose internally and that I need a left front tie rod and to replace the rack and pinion assembly. I did some research and am noticing people having a clunk-like noise sometimes while driving which happens often for me as well.

I did not find many helpful tutorials when searching for DIY rack and pinion replacement on the 2007 Chevy Malibu, does anyone have any helpful links that could help me get this job done?
