Yes correct. If the wheels can wobble a bit but the steering wheel is in a dead spot there will be no feedback. When you let go the steering wheel will move to one side of the dead spot and get batted to the other. That's the theory.

All said I'm still betting on the control arm. Just replaced my wife's right rear front axle version tonight.

It was quite easy to replace the control arm but I couldn't get the inner tie rod to move so my alignment needs correction: I'm at zero toe and the steering wheel is tilted a bit cw.

I need to do the left side then hopefully I can get a bigger wrench that will break the inner tie rod loose.

I'd like to have 9' of toe each wheel according to spec but also have the steering wheel level when driving straight.
