stearing question.

Is there something wrong with my 1995 4.6 or is it just in my head. The stearing doesn't like to return to straight when coming out of a turn. Its not that big of a deal but my other 92 3.8 was great because when you got half way through a turn the wheel quikly returned to you. My 1995 doesn't even try to come back!

Not to mention it takes twice the brake force to stop eaqual to my 92! Wow, come to think of it my old 92 had great stearing and brakes.... What gives?

If it turns freely, then the problem is most likely the alignment. The Caster being way off is the prime thing that would do that. Take a peak at the strut rods and bushings.

MN12BIRD, my car does the same thing with the steering...my 93 would be effort less...i thought it was always the year difference on the cars and different steering pump settings...
