Eoc

Thanks again, weather spotter. It's when I restart shortly after eoc. When it's been sitting for a while and then I start it, it doesn't have any vibration.

I ONLY eoc when it's a large, open parking lot, when their isn't any traffic and I am confident that it's safe... We are talking about speeds from 15mpg then to a stop to park forward in a parking space.

Don't forget that large cars with manual steering likely would have had different ratios than a power assisted one.

Metro is correct. Ps modles have diff designs. If its only after EOC. I a thinking it is just the system reballancing. It should not.be.an.issue.

yeah but you need to keep in mind there is a difference between a vehicle without power steering and one with power steering but no power. without power to the power steering you have to fight the hydraulic fluid when steering, with no power steering you only fight the wheel resistance.
