Re: audi bashing again

Speaking of steering.  What is the problem with Audi's steering?
I know the steering rack on my audi 90 was replaced when I bought it
used with about ~50K miles on it.  I might add that was at a great expense 
to Audi.  I remember that the response of the service lady was that she had 
not seen a 90 with this problem but she said that it was 
common on 5000.  Is there anything that can be checked or done
to prevent the steering rack from going bad.

I have notice that my car makes a hollow sound barely audible when I make a 
turn.  This is most audible at slower speed.  Is this an indication of
steering rack or servotronic on its way out the door?  Inquiring minds 
want to know....

Have a nice weekend
