    Play in bars '07 RXP

    I have a little slop in my steering when pushing down or pulling up on the bars... I've seen some others with it also.

    Took it all apart, but it looks to me like the only way to get rid of it is shimming the steering stem against the housing, and that would require a big (54 mm I/D x 65mm O/D x maybe a mm or two thick) shim.

    Anybody else have this prob or tried to fix it? I lived with it all this past season- but figured I would try to fix it up with the off season down time.

    I have the same 'feature'. My 04 GTX was perfectly tight with no slop at all. I've gotten used to it and probably will not do anything about it.

    If I can find a source for a some reasonably priced shims of the correct size... I can shim it out- then I can send you some shims if you want to fix yours.
