Hello there, I have had my trabant around a month. When I first got it I could barely turn the wheel. I replaced the top swivel mounts and most of the bottoms apart from the threaded metal as I could not get the pin out. I also reattached the rack gaitor as it had come loose at one end. I have just driven the car on a 350 mile trip and while the steering seems better it is still quite stiff and the characteristics change continually. The steering wheel makes all sorts of creaking noises too. Any ideas where I should look next. Any help greatly appreciated.
