Default Steering Catching

My steering on '07 Vert is catching when coming out of a turn returning to straight from both left and right when moving (always in same places). When sitting still and turning wheel lock to lock no catching. I have no leakage of any part of system. Any ideas?

Default Re: Steering Catching

Mine was doing this when coming out of a right hand turn when underload. As soon as I pushed the clutch in and took the load off the drivetrain it would jump back to center. On my car it was the control arm bushings. They were so bad that the bolt was flopping around to the point where it got bent. I replaced the control arms and the steering stopped hanging.

Is the front end clunking?

No noises of any kind. I do have 38K miles so bushings sound about right. I'll hoist it up and check it out tomorrow.

Thanks for you prompt response.
