G'day
i have noticed of late that my XH has been really lose in the front end, the dteering feels really light and the car feels a little unsatble. My brother has an Elxr8 and his feels much tighter and heavier
The car is lowered 2.5" using king springs and munroe shockers, i am also running 17" AJR's
Anyone got any suggetstions on what it could be?

i'd guess it would be

balljoints
rack
intermediate shaft

To check the last, have a mate rock the steering(just lightly so its the freeplay) and then look in the engine bay where the intermediate shaft is and see if theres any movement in the uni's. This is quite common in these falcons
