Steering question

So my 02 gts is getting old. Any autocrossers or track day guys can give me advice on updating steering feel?

My cars steering doesn't feel as sharp as it used to be. I find my self having to input more steering angle, and it doesn't respond as quick as it used too.

Running hotchkis sway bars, Cusco lower tie, f tanabe Strut bar, trd 3pt rear, tanabe lower rear tie bar and trd LSD. Also running gold line springs and stock shocks(original) but probably less than 60k mi on the shocks. Had jic flta2 coilovers but they blew and they don't rebuild those anymore. Also have 17x8.25 bfg GForce comp tires.

New tires? Refresh suspension/steering parts? New car?

Alignment, tires, worn suspension parts are my first guess. Have you inspected the tires closely for wear patterns lately?

Energy Suspensions master kit is your solution and we have a lot of the same suspension mods.

The biggest source of sloppy steering is either tie rod ends are worn and/or the LCA bushings are shot.
