Ive built a manual rack and set the pre load to higher than standard but on the car there is way too much 'twisting' of the rack. I took the gaiter off and took a spanner to the inner tie rod and you could really twist with ease. I had a look at the standard rack I have here and found that taking the spring out helped with the twisting while still allowing to turn the pinion without too much force. Is there any reason why I shouldnt remove the spring? Is it a 'safety' feature too soak up bumps to stop damage to the internals or something, because I know cars granted more older now have used shims for this pre load rather than how its designed now.
