Hi everybody , I've got a Cupra R all lovely and tuned.:D I was wondering whether anybody else who drove a Cupra R or any Leon for that matter got any feedback through the steering. Its not the anti-roll bar. It feels as though there is a bit of play. Its not a big issue its just a bit annoying because you can feel the bumps more than usual through the steering wheel. I wasn't sure if the couplings at the end of the steering column are prone to wear and therefore result in feedback. Cheers for your help with this random matter.

Theres alot of issues with golfs getting more play. iirc its mally the track rods ends that wear. Sometimes the whole rack has to be changed. I was following a thread on the VWaudi for a while where the guy could turn the wheel 90 degrees before the wheels started to turn. In the end he needed a new rack.

Might be worthwhile, if its compatible with the cupras, to fit the Audi steering rack from the 225 TT.

Thanks for your feedback. I haven't made any suspension or wheel mods, its a bit weird really. The play is I suppose is about 1cm either side of 90deg if that, its just I can feel it whilst driving.
