Ok so I did swap out the malfunctioning used steering rack from LKQ with another one as they do guarantee the parts for six months (I think) and the replacement rack is working well so far.

It has not shown any fail codes nor have I had it reprogrammed at the dealer. My local dealer who did the original diagnosis had warned me that I would need to have the replacement rack programmed to my vehicle. He said that warning messages would come up on the in car display but nothing has appeared yet (after three days and six trips).

Overall the job is not that hard to do, it took about three hours getting the old rack out and reinstalling the replacement. The car will have to have the front end aligned soon but it drives as well as it ever did right now.

Thanks again for the comments, help and encouragement!

Good work man. Let us know if anything squeaks. My rack has been slowly failing for about a year so this is all good info to hear.
