88 Lesabre Custom. 185k. FWD. "C" VIN. Replaced rack ass'y and
outer tie rod ends, pump, and pressure line. Old steering system
before was waaay loose and sloppy but the steering was relatively
effortless. Now with the new components (fittings greased, car
aligned) the steering is quite tight and relatively difficult.
Probably as stiff or stiffer to steer than my 98 Accord. I have no
point of reference as I got the car with worn out steering. Does this
sound correct? If not, I can't think of what it would be. I know
that so many of these old GM cruisers could always be steered with one
finger. Mine definitely cannot...not now. Help or advice
appreciated. Many thanks.
