2000 S430 rack/pinion Replacement?
Good evening Everyone.
A few weeks back my driver side front wheel began making a squeaking noise when turning right or left. A local mechanic said it sounds like rack and pinion needs replacing. Sound is only coming from the left front wheel, and it squeaks at every turn. At first I thought maybe a bushing, but I am a complete dummy when it comes to mechanical things and autos.
Can anyone comment or suggest anything other than rack and pinion? A rack and pinion isn't too pricey and since my S430 has 80k miles it's not like replacing it wouldn't be a smart thing to do anyways as a preventative measure, but looking for your opinion.
Thanks in advance.
