The Steering Gear and Rack Assembly sells for around $252 and the Labor Time Guide calls for 2 hours to complete the job. Labor rates vary from shop to shop, so what you pay for labor will effect the bot***** *****ne. For a job of this type, a "fair" labor rate can by anywhere from $85-$125 per hour. Once complete the front end will need an alignment. This service varies from shop to shop, but the average is somewhere around $150-$175.
