More Precise SteeringMore Precise Steering  - Overview - Mitsubishi Lancer

The 2008 Lancer owes its crisp, fluid steering response to the integration of the highly rigid body structure, the newly designed suspension, and of course the new rack and pinion steering system itself. The new steering rack has a slightly larger diameter than the previous Lancer's.

The optimized steering column layout features joint friction-reduction parts that improve steering feel (reduced torque fluctuation). Support stiffness at the steering wheel end of the steering column has been increased by 20 percent compared to the previous model, reducing steering wheel vibration. Dampers used on the intermediate shaft help reduce shimmy.
