I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 GT. I noticed in September of 07 after having my tires and brakes replaced and rotors turned that I heard a clunking noise when I turn the car. It doesn't do it all the time, but I recently went to Big 10 Tires who told me that my rack and pinion needs to be replaced. The dealership where I bought it says that they don't think that is it because I have not had any leaks. Any suggestions to what the clunking noise is?

It's the intermediate shaft. Very common problem. The u-joint on the I-shaft gets frozen and starts to bind when turning. As far as the rack it's a sealed unit and this vehicle has electric steering.I would also check the front end, maybe a loose tie rod end or lower balljoint.
