My steering in my jeep is super messed up. When I turn, it either locks up or it feels like its stuck on something. I took it to the local shop and he said its either the pin set or power steering pump. To make it better, he said it will be around $600 to fix. Could it be either of those and would it be an easy fix for me to fix?*

Post some pictures of your front end and all steering joints/parts. Does it make a difference if the jeep is on or off?

The $600, unfortunately, sounds reasonable for the solution which is likely either a new steering box or power steering pump plus the labor to install them.

Update:

The mechanic took it for a ride and looked at everything. They said that nothing is broken on it but there's to much power steering fluid in the reservoir. Because that expands due to heat, it could be why it's locking up. Does that make any sense?*
