Steering slop in 126

You'd be amazed how much play there was in the steering when they were new. This is 1970's technology and recirculating ball systems have a lot of play by nature. If you change the sterring shock, it should make a tremendous difference.

I didn't read all of this old thread. Don't mistake seizing ball joints for steering wheel free play when driving. When steering does not find it's own center due to binding, it feels like you are trying to catch up with the car.

I was referring to the recirculating ball steering, which is the system used in the 126. As opposed to, say, a rack and pinion system.
