    Default Poor handling

    I am still waiting for my front shocks from ECP, and today I took it to one of the cab renters in E.Port for them to look at.
    The mech took it for a drive and gave a running commentary on what he was feeling.
    Follows the road
    Steering feels slacker when turning to the left
    Feels vague and imprecise
    Bumps transmit a "twitch" to the steering wheel
    which is what I felt, glad someone else has felt/seen it now.
    So up in the air with it......couldnt find anything........all was nice and tight...
    So back on the floor......engine off.......rocking steering wheel from side to side.............the rack can be seen to move, not much but it is there from side to side, and the fluid bottle can be seen to move back and forward slightly. Popped down to the local dealer (all I wanted was someone to stick there head under the bonnet and say thats okay or no it shouldnt do that, but "too busy sir".
    Anyone know if this sounds right or not??
