Hi there. A power steering leak can often be caused by a damaged hose or the pinion seal being damaged; so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the repair they are recommending is accurate. The price for steering racks and pinion gear set on Infinity can be rather costly; and the labor would take about 5 to 8 hours, so that estimate is also on par with having a professional shop complete this service. To compare, you might want to request a price estimate to have one of our professional mobile mechanic complete a steering rack / gear box replacement for your vehicle.
