Z4 M too much feedback from steering
so it started with my 2007 m coupe hitting a carefully camouflaged divider curb (about 3-4 inches high) at about 50mph.. these idiots here in WA often have divider curbs between same side lanes that are painted white to camo blend in with the regular divider line paint.. no reflectors or anything.. anyway my right front strut broke and the shop replaced two rims, strut and steering gear
now i'm getting this weird effect that i get too much feedback from steering.. meaning if there's any irregularity on the road i feel it in the steering wheel. it used to be that i didn't have to micromanage it, now it's just plain annoying. whenever i hit any sort of bump the steering wheel turns and i have to constantly grip it and adjust to keep the car in a straight line. it used to not be the case. i brought the car back to the dealer and they denied any problems. the car is aligned somewhat correctly i believe (it goes straight on a completely flat road without irregularities). also the steering got noticeably lighter as in i have to make a lot less effort to turn the car. Owners of M coupe know that the steering on the car is "heavy" and that's how i like it. going around corners at any kind of speed and hitting a slight bump easily flips the steering out of control if you don't grip it hard.
Any ideas what i might be experiencing and where to look?
