Hi all, hope someone can help, I have an 07 st2 Ive had it about a year now and I must say I love it, but its had a small problem from day 1 the steering sticks a little when turning the wheel to the right, it only seems to happen when you first get into the car, after a while it goes away :huh: Ive had my local garage have a look at it but didn't find anything wrong, I even left it over night as it seems to be worse in the morning, but now I think it happens anytime its been sitting idle, im not very up on mechanics so if someone has any ideas id love to hear them.

Have something to contribute?

it is a hard job, and since you car it a st performance model, I would take it to ford and have them it checked out, the more i think about it, the more i would say its the rack, and it will cost you.

good luck with finding the problem
