    Any ideas guys, as it says, when im on full lock left there is a good amount of lock, when turned to the right it is noticably less. And there is no play in the steering as far as i can tell.

    The car has a quaife rack and power steering arms.

    recently the rack was unbolted, then bolted back on but thats about it.

    Any ideas would be a help as at the moment i have none.

    Cheers, Jase

    Your rack isnt centered,
    the tie rods have to be the same length.
    Needs a good wheel alignment

    I used to run corona control arms and corona tie rod tubes, which made it physically impossible to have the rack off centre. There wasnt enough thread to mis-align it on the tie rod and rack ends.
