You need a new rack. I have had this problem for years. I bought it back in 2003 and about a year later the problem started and gradually got worse. I have had it checked by a few mechanics and they all said the same thing. Whatever you do, don't get the dealer to do it, they will charge you way too much. I think the prices I got was about $550 - $600, I dont remember exactly. I just deal with it cause my car isn't gonna last too much longer and I have had so many other problems with it besides that and can't afford to do everything.
It is like you mentioned. Steers fine while going faster (although it doesn't as good as it did) then when you're slow, you have to pull on the wheel real hard to turn it. I find that when that happens, sometimes I just turn the opposite direction the quickly the way I need and sometimes the power assist kicks in.
