The car did not wander in the lane and the steering was free not stiff as before. The car is a pleasure to drive and the safety issue no longer exits.
Hi Focus 2012,

Excellent! Glad to learn your Focus is a pleasure to drive around.
Have a PROSPEROUS New Year!

Hi Cbaldree,

As Focus 2012 stated, the local Ford dealer will be able to determine the parts used in your Focus. So head on over if the steering is a concern for you. Please keep us posted on the results.

You also have a GREAT New Year!
