    Hey guys, just got back from hitting the dirt and noticed when i got back a squeaking sound when turning the wheel. I open the hood, look above the steering rack and notice something not right. This even a easy fix i can attack or is this going to cost me alot at the dealer? Any feedback is great, thanks guys! I attached some pics

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    If your tech savvy you can do it yourself. I had to change one on my last truck. at the time I didn't have much experience working on vehicles and it came out alright.

    Looks like one of your steering rack ends failed, gonna cost about $120 for the part and about 45 mins to replace.
