I tested this for curiosity's sake. I don't feel I've experienced any issues, but when the car is off, and I turn the steering wheel, I hear a clunking noise, but whilst driving I don't experience any thuds or vibrations when turning - when going over a pothole, I hear a thud, but think that's more the suspension making the noise.
Not sure if maybe this dry steering test is maybe normal? Or maybe its a different noise I'm hearing.
