Simple test. Get the car on a lift with the wheels dangling free.
Take a roadwheel in your hands, holding it at the 9 o'clock and
3 o'clock positions. Turn it to full lock in both directions.
If the effort required to _leave_ full lock in both direction is the
same, you'll be OK. If it's much stiffer in one direction than the
other, new seals will not last very long.
