    QuestionAcceleration/Steering issue - Please Move Me

    OK, my 93 DeVille(103k) just got new springs/passive struts, pass. wheel bearing and the alignment is correct. The problem is when I take off from a light or mash the pedal on the highway to pass someone the steering wheel loosens up enough for me to take notice. I checked all of the basics and I am drawing a blank,

    P.S. The steering while not accelerating hard is fine nice and tight.

    Rev the engine up in park and try to duplicate the symptom. It sounds like the power steering pump is providing too much assist at high RPM.

    P.S. Moved the post for you, and fore future reference there is a little button with an exclamation mark on it in the blue bar above every post. If you need something moved, deleted, or want a moderator to check a post for anything inappropriate, use that button.
