HiCustomerthis is lostrider, it could be the pump or the steering rack, the pump produces the pressure need for the steering rack to actuate, if the rack has gone bad or the pump is not producing the pressure needed, either could be the problem, I would recommend getting the system diagnosed before you put parts on the car due to the cost of the parts, but here is the price for replacing the pump assembly, hope this helps.
