the el has vague steering at high speeds, it goes all over the park, will be gettin wheel alignment and balnce. and at low speeds it seems to be alot heavier than the other falcons.
i was wonderin whether a power steerin fluid flush would help.
what fluid does every one recomend.
thanks for any help.

Just at high speed???
I have kinda sloppy steering at all speeds in my ute ... but I know it needs adjustment to fix that ... either that or re-co the steering box in it.

Ford did lower the amount of power assistance offered in the EL over EF though never having driven an EL (or any other Falcons besides my Dad and I's EFs) I can't say with any certainty whether or not that would be having any bearing on your problem.
