Thank you for all this input!
I actually have ordered and received the new steering rack bushings from SuperPro. Next week I'm swapping.
Based on some positive inputs on this forum, it makes some sense to try this. The highway steering corrections are a bit tiring.
Today, I tried with a little more conviction to figure out where the drafting is coming from/around.
I found when I pushed my hand against my drivers window (what other window, duh) , just behind my ear, the draft pitch changed. It continued to occur as I continued to press through the top sill. Inspecting my seals (after stopping of course, otherwise that would be brave of me), it appears the very corners, the seals have shrunk and are not tight to the "welds". The welds are visible. There is a gap of over 3/4 inch maybe more.
On the passenger sides, there is a bit of sag as well.
I figured what happened was that the Krown rustproofing I had performed 3-4 years ago seems to have damaged the seals or affected them?
I also found this really ingenious tip on how to solve seals that may have lost their elasticity...but I have a couple of spare door seals I grabbed off an 08' and will test fit them later next week. To my collection they were in good shape and for some reason on an "all you can carry parts day" at the recycler, these were in my hand.
Credit to this guy to think of such a simple solution for making door seals tight?
Again, thanks for inputs. I hope to give some feedback later next week.
Ironically, both of these conditions I want less of, from the vehicle itself
Happy Holidays to everyone! For me, a Merry Xmas as well.
