According to the workshop manual, Heavy steering can be caused by:
Excessively low tyre pressures
Insufficient lubricant in
'Dry' steering connections
Out of track
Misaligned steering column
And, I have never changed the shims
between the rack damper cap and the rack body from what was there from the
factory (I assume), but isn't this the way you adjust the back-lash (either
too tight or too loose) between the pinion and the rack? Just some thoughts.

there any adjustment on the steering rack? I was driving my Sprite the
night and noticed the steering felt real tight. I know on my VW I can
the tension on the pinion. Is there any way to do this on my Sprite?
