How to tighten/quicken up my steering response
Anyone have any suggestions?
I took it out into the mountains the other day and was wishing for faster steering response, tighter steering response.
I felt like it was quite a chore to get it around some of the turns. Although I'm a bit biased because at the track I drive an S2000, so maybe it was just my imagination/me being overly demanding of my C43.
But I was just wondering if there are any modifications that I can do. I see that people replace their steering bushing, so I figured I'd ask.
Any input or help is appreciated.

try pressure testing your power steering pump pressure, your 43 should have a tight steering response, see if your front lower control arm bushings are cracked, also stiffin up the suspesion"new h&r - renntech - racing springs. can't remember does you 43 have a 119 or 113 engine i know some early 98's had the 119 if it's that check your steering gear box they can be tightned up
