Hey guys, i bought a VN Calais not to long ago. The steering pump needed replaceing which i did and i noticed a change in the steering.

Ok the weird thing is when the car is cold the steering feels stiff, but after 10 mins its nice and loose. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my car?

Thanks VnPlayer

I got a second hand pump but ALL the seals were replaced so it was pretty much brand new, $50 and i had to buy the resivour which was another $10

You can buy brand new power steering pump for $70.

The power steering rack is not really much, it also depends it you will be putting it in yourself or not.

A second hand rack should be much, for a brand new one you will be looking at $200+
