Hard vibrations when turning

OK another possible problem with my 4ws... When I turn the wheel while stationory or even moving very slowly, there sometimes is a hard vibration coming from the car (usually after rain). I cant really tell where it's coming from cause it happens so quickly (lasts about 1 sec)m buy, again, I'm worried it could get worse...

Any help would be appreciated cheers

Probably because you are down under - everything is swirling in the wrong direction - that has to catch up with the car sooner or later. Im pretty sure if you move you're car will be fine - or you will at least have a gajillion dollars from all the goobs on here that will give their first born for a rhd lude.

Having rhd is like have a Asian chick with blond hair, blue eyes, and big boobs. Very rare, very hot, and oh so much fun in the curves.

The manual is also available in my sig---



Bottom right hand corner, you see the little red cap? That's the power steering reservoir.

ok i checked my PS fluid and it's at max level. anyone have any other suggestions what this could be, I'm getting a little worries now as it might be the 4WS and most mechanics haven't got a clue

cheers

Check to make sure that the power steering belt is taught and not loose. There isn't powersteering fluid residue all over the bottom side of the hood is there? If those aren't the culprit I'd check into the axles being the case as well as your tie-rod ends for the power steering rack in the front and rear.
