[s-cars] Hydraulic groan when turning

I think intuition will tell you the groan is in the steering, not the
portion of the hydraulics, Chris.
It could be the pump to rack pressure hose, which has a restrictor also,
but I think you will find the groan is in the rack caused by some
seal leaking. If it is the hose, the system will transmit pump pulses
Hopefully, you will not be groaning as well.
