    stearing feels very lite ?

    hey all ok now i got gearbox issue and aircon issue sorted on my cabby starting to love it more and more , i was wondering the stearing feels very very lite compaird to my coupe its now got the same wheels and springs that the coupe had on it and its still very light and i feel like the stering wheel just goes where it wants because its so lite over bumps and dips etc.

    i do kinda love the liteness of the wheel when doing manovers but at speed its kinda very lose

    is this normal ? if not what would cause very lite stearing ?

    Have you checked your tyre pressures?

    my 03 elegance 1.6 dual fuel Estate feels light compared to the wife's 2000 1.8 CDX Estate.

    Maybe there was a change in steering gear at some point.

    They have the exact same wheels and tyres on.

    yeah cabby literlry has lowering springs from coupe, and front shocks from coupe ...and wheels and tyres are same .. the lite stearing was present before anyway and is now

    tyre presures are correct ... its not a bad feeling quite like the feel just feels odd lol compaird to the coupe which is what i would call avarage stearing lol

    Be worth getting the tracking and camber checked, if any of these are out it can make the steering feel very wierd.
