[DML] Steering vibration



With all the talk about the "Flex coupling" and questions about raod 
vibration transmission through the steering I thought I'd mention ...

I had an undesirable vibration in the steering.  It almost felt like 
improper balance coupled with loose parts.  I replaced the sway bar 
bushings with poly bushings and it made a SIGNIFICANT improvement.  So 
if a smoother steering feel is desirable, get rid of the old & soft 
bushings first.

FWIW, I had a similar feel in my other high performance vehicle (a not 
so concours 01 Astro).  When I replaced those bushings the feel was 
SUBSTANTIALLY improved as well.

So when the question about how much better the flex coupling feels, it 
should be in the context of a firm, not failed, front end.
