My Haynes manual says full lock strains the PAS system, but doesn't mention this noise or shudders - is it normal or do I need to get worried about it (car's been like it since I bought it over a year ago)

Appreciate your help!

reguarding your judder when on full lock,I have found that this is sometimes caused by the linkage at the end of the steering rack touching the exhaust downpipe.this is especially likely if a non merc downpipe has been can attempt to reposition the downpipe to stop the problem. hope this helps. phil
