Complaint - Steering

SEPTEMBER 2012 I HAD BOTH FRONT DRIVE AXLES REPLACED BECAUSE THERE WAS SHAKING IN THE STEERING AND THE MECHANIC SAID IT WAS THOSE AXLES. MAY 2013 THE SHAKING WAS STILL VERY PERSISTENT AND I WAS HEARING A POPPING NOISE WHEN TURNING THE WHEELS. MECHANIC REPLACED THE SWAY BARS. THIS STILL DIDNT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. 6-3-13 WHEN DRIVING ABOUT 25MPH "POWER STEERING" CAME UP ON RADIO DIAL AND CAR WAS VERY HARD TO STEER. AFTER TURNING CAR OFF AND RESTARTING DIDNT HAVE A PROBLEM. IT HAS DONE THIS MANY TIMES SINCE THEN. TODAY 06-17-13 I STILL HAVE POWER STEERING, BUT NOW THERE IS A SCRUBBING SOUND AND THE STEERING WHEEL IS REAL "JERKY" WHEN TURNING THE WHEELS, ESPECIALLY TO THE LEFT. I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT I AM GOING TO LOSE MY POWER STEERING WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY AND I WONT BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE CAR. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE IMMEDIATLY BEFORE LIVES OUR LOST.
