I don't know if it will be that easy. The steering seems very subjective, well according to the ford techs anyway.

It is not something easily duplicated. It is only living with the car, driving it day in and day out that you realize it does not drive normally.

When going for a short test drive, the problems I feel can be brushed off as road conditions. But like I said, living with the car, and paying close attention to how many small corrections you have to make nearly constantly, and looking at other cars on the road really show that something is not right with my car.
