I've kind of noticed this more since the 4 wheel alignment. If I turn the wheel there is a tiny 'dead' spot of a couple of mm more noticeable at a standstill but on a flat smooth road it is there too. Is there some sort of joint on the end of the steering column that connects to the rack or whatever?. The nearside track rod and end were replaced for the alignment as it was seized and the other one was fine so I don't think its these. It deffo feels more like it's in the connecting of the steering wheel somewhere if you know what I mean. I'm hoping someone is going to say there's some sort of rubber bushed universal joint on the end of the steering that needs replaced. Cheers as ever for any help Si.
