Simply call the place that will do the work and ask for an estimate. They have books that will tell them how much time it takes to do every procedure, and they simply take this time and multiply it by their hourly rate. You should be able to hold them to this figure, unless another problem is encountered, and then they should contact you and ask if you want it repaired also and for how much or if you just want the original problem repaired.

Almost all dealerships use this method, although most dealerships have a high hourly rate, but you will get a good job and a warranty on parts and labor, so the choice is yours. If you find a good mechanic, keep him. If not get a quote from a dealer and if this is too high and you don't want to tackle the job yourself, get some reccomendations on who in your area is known to be a good mechanic and again, ask for a quote and make them stick to it.

You need to get the front suspension checked as a precaution, to rule out damage. You should also check if you have any vehicle error codes (DTC\'s) set. You do not need a scan tool to do this - simultaneously hold in the top of the Info button and the On/Off button for a few seconds and your instrument panel will go into diagnostic mode. Be prepared with paper and pencil - you will likely have a bunch of them which you can then look up on the internet.



Mechanically, the most probable cause is a failing steering rack and pinion assembly, due to excessive wear on the rack bushings. This wear is usually caused by the protective rubber boots on the control rods failing (letting road crap get onto the exposed rods), or bad power steering fluid. Older Cadillacs are prone to this type of damage. Another possible cause is a failure of the variable effort steering actuator (part of the rack).

  • Check the Steering fluid first. and check the hose of the steering fluid make sure there is no leak. And after you add a steering fluid and still there is a noise visit a good mechanic and advise the mechanic to check the pump.
