Dont know if it is normal but have noticed that a couple of the steering arms (maybe panhard rod, dont really know the name of it) up the front has about 45 degrees of play in it. It is the rods with the rubber bushes on either end. How tight should this be and could it be responsible for the car feeling light on the road some times and tracking with road grooves on occassion?

Any help appreciated and hope I have'nt been too ambigous with my explanation.
