Has anyone noticed or pointed out that sometimes when you start the car that your steering wheel jolts a couple inches? By jolts, I mean tries to jump to what I'm assuming is center. I've noticed this when I park and the front wheels are not fully straightened (i.e. park at work, come out 8 hrs later and start the car without hands on wheel).

Once that power steering kicks in yo, it just takes any tension out of the rack. A couple inches? Never seen it kick that much. Maybe 1/4th of an inch max.

You got enough air in your tires?
