My steering seems particularly heavy. I have compared with my brothers 96 and even though he runs his front tyres at 24 psi and I am now up to 28 to try to lighten the load, mine still seems unduly heavy.
Any ideas chaps?

I would have thought that is pointing to an issue somewhere in the suspension, or the rack itself. Very high castor? Stiff steering joints?
If you jack it up and turn things is it the same. You ideally need to do this by supporting the lower suspension arm, rather than having everything hanging, as that's not what the suspension is like in real life.
