Play in steering wheel, see my options:
Right now, to combat play in my steering wheel, I am doing the following:
New 03 cobra A arms with offset delrin bushings and x2 balljoints
HR Race Springs (moving from my C springs)
New Nitto 555 265/35/18s
D&D Bumpsteer kit
Reinstall K member brace.
Align to max caster, 1.5 neg camber, 1/32" total toe in
The rest of my front suspension is:
Poly shortened swaybar endlinks
poly centered rack bushings
stock front bar
I know I am missing a major component that is now 10 years old, the ragjoint in the steering shaft, but has there been any new options besides the $250 solid joint steering shaft? I drove a Sube the other day, and the accuracy of steering input amazed me (although I don't know how I felt about the way the rest of it handled, although it was very modern and very smooth yet sporty), and getting back in my car, the feeling I get from the steering wheel just disgusts me.
Also, would there be any benefit to going to a new steering rack, say 99+ (I thought they revised the steering ratio in 99).
