Without the limiters on the rack most of the tighter turning radius is preserved vs the factory 18" handling package which with the limiter prevents the wheels from turning as far, and therefore has a wider radius by 3 or more feet over the standard car iirc.
I wish I could get rid of my steering limiters. I'll take a slight rub every now and then vs the stupid turning radius I have now.
