[DML] Re: Steering problem

Remove the two inspection panels in the trunk that are closest to the 
brake master cylinder. Lift the front end of the car just off the 
ground, and then you can easily observe where the binding is as you 
steer back and forth. I've seen cars with no bushing at all and they 
don't bind up, they just rattle a lot. You may have a dried out u-
joint in there.
