I wish that, for the ST, they had put a conventional steering rack in it w/o any electronic trickery, etc. Who cares about 1-2 mpg in a pocket rocket?

Ford really needs to thoroughly test new components before letting them out. I know that the ST is a new model, but wasn't anything learned with the problems they've had with the normal Mk.3 steering over the last 1.5 years?

I had the steering gear replaced in my regular Mk3...it goes in a straight line, but the steering feel is not all that good. Nothing like a good hydraulic setup...

Hope that the dealer will be able to fix your steering ASAP...
