Heavy steering

Have changed my wishbones and ended up with heavy steering, got any ideas.

Stiff ball joints? I replaced two of mine recently (the boots were split) and the steering improved significantly - it's better now than it's ever been.

Are you sure you got the bones the right way round? Wrong way would screw up caster and could make steering very heavy.

If the caster is more than 7 degrees then steering will centre quickly and be heavy to drive, maybe you wishbones have changed this geometry, if so it will feel different.

My thoughts too - different bones could mean a totally different geometry
