Steering help

I have a pinch, or a spot the the steering seem to get caught once on every full turn.
It is in the same spot as you turn the wheel. It is like it's hitting something. I have looked over everything with no luck.
I was thinking of changing out the bushing , that is in the trunk.
Has anyone ever had the problem?

Nope. But I would check the steering rack - maybe the problem is there. Also check the tierods and make sure each wheel turns without binding. Any other suggestions?

I would also take a look at the tie rods. If they have been adjusted previously in a manner make one rod "longer" in reference to the steering rack - that could create a binding feeling.

Hope you can understand what I mean, wish my English language had more useful tech words in it - but alas..

Try loosening up the clamps on the steering column u-joints and then turning the steering wheel. This may eliminate the problem and then you can re-tighten the clamps. I recall that there are several posts about this same problem after installation of the bump steer spacers. You might want to try a search on that topic.
