Gen III Steering Rack Owners - Dull and Light?
Guys do you find the GENIII steering rack a bit on the light side and vague? Mine came with GenII but had the usual failure and got replaced under warranty to GenIII.plus the usual procedure (springs, strut tops, etc). This one is super quiet and actually you feel more of the rd (ie road imperfections) but it feels alot lighter and more vague. Taking hard corners is ok but apexes and changing lanes at 60-100 km/hr are not very confident inspiring.
I have installed the rear sway bar 2 weeks ago and im hoping the front sway bar replacement with a 24mm H&R set on soft this weekend will help with the issue.
Also once the springs are in (H&R 25mm), this will increase the negative camber which will help turns (though im thinking it will make it even lighter as there will be less surface contact on the straight).
I know VAG have taken away the ability to change the steering assistance which really pisses me off, but is there something else to change like bushes or anything to give the steering a more lively feel?
I will need new tyres in around 10K more so might get something with harder walls (currently running oem Mich Exaltos)
