Looking for a little advice regarding the lightness of the steering on the Foz STi. I find the the car tends to understeer and the steering is quite light and loose.

Looking to iradicate the understeer and get the front nose of the car to dig in and grip more. The car is a daily so not after a harsh, crashing ride and I've had the suspension struts looked, they have around 70k on them they are not showing any signs of leaking, failing or knocking (famous last words) so not looking to replace them until they fail.

So where's the best place to start? Anti Roll Bars? Drop links? Front or Rear or Both?

What's the common opinion, any help would be great

Are you on standard FSTI suspension?
Do you have any suspension mods already ?

What tyres are you running?

What kind of condition are your steering rack bushes and anti roll bar bushes in ?

Hi fella,

No suspension mods and on the standard setup which has covered just shy of 70k.

Its on pirelli P7's I think they are called and will be looking to replace them.

Sorry i couldn't tell you of the condition of them as I've not looked.
