Re: [DML] Re: I found a new rattle noise - Steering column U joint?

I totally agree with Andy's statement.  On sports cars you want road feel.  At the limits of adhesion you can feel this in the steering, it usually becomes mushy just before the tires lets go.  If you were to reduce the road feel you are just creating a sedan.
