If I install a new steering stabilizer, would I see any benefits in my day-to-day driving? One mechanic said my stabilizer is leaking and that a new one would help my steering. I think he's wrong.
I'm not expecting rack-and-pinion precision and feel with my '91 GW steering, but, my steering has a dead spot in the center, and I have about an 1" of play in the steering on each side. Also, the steering wheel is slow to return to center.
I already fixed a bad tie-rod, and that took care of some play. Another mechanic says the steering gearbox maybe too tight. Any suggestions? Larry.
