Rack and pinion problem

Hey all,


So i was speaking to my dealer to diagnose my steering problem. They pinpointed it to my steering rack, which is what i expected. So then they explained it'll go bad again because my wheels are too big (18inch) that's when i got lost. Then i asked him how is that even a thing and he continued saying stuff i really didn't listen to.

I just want to get the opinion of you folk. Is my steering going bad caused by my wheels? i have FE5 most things i can get except control arms.

I can't see that being the issue as 18s are the factory wheel size on the SS models. What issue were you having?

My symptoms are my steering wheel feeling like a boat wheel usually when parking, and when going maybe 40mph+ my steering wheel get stuck when trying to turn sometimes.

Poor mechanics always blame aftermarket modifications.
