Default 1991 Acura Integra rack and pinion?

I have a 1991 Acura Integra RS that I just changed the rack and pinion, both front axles, both tierod ends, both lower ball joints, and both front brakes on. When I drive the car now, it feels like it has no power steering. I realize that it does need to be aligned, but the steering wheel is just so hard to turn. What can this be from? What can I do to fix this problem? Can anyone help me?

Several things ! in make sure they bleed the air out of the rack when it was installed , if so make sure the belt is turning on the power steering pump, if that's correct, then the alignment when your driving the tires would be almost sounding like they are skidding if they Aline was that for out, OK, now if a shop did it , return asap and if you don't think its safe to drive they must provide towing @ there cost, for safety reasons, tell them your concerned they did not do something correctly, and it may be unsafe to drive it only has two ball joints and struts and maybe they bent something I find it hard to believe they would not test drive it first and notice this , but if you did it yourself then if all is correct then its air trapped in the Steering rack and P/S Pump and it will be hard to turn cause with air it will growl and it might not if not enough fluid is in the rack OK no air is acceptable then let me know OK, take care just write
