    Hi all Honda fans here.... have question about this thing.

    My car steering wheel got quite big free play. Even after done wheel alignment it still have quite big free play. Taking corner will require concentration !

    Once asked pomen what will cure this and makes the steering wheel no free play (smallest free play gap at least). They mentioned need to change something that will cost me some 500+. Now i would like to know what are normally the things that will cause this to happens and is that really cost me 500+?

    Forgot to mention, im driving EK3 anyway.

    Thanx :Not_Impressed:

    bro.....i think you need to check your steering rack.....maybe its faulty already.....kasi bukak tayar......pegang tie rod end and then kasi tolak keluar masuk.....kalu tak boleh tolak keluar masuk.....maybe its something else.....sorry for the BM admin! just helping this bro.....
