Help...steering!! Anyone or anyone with an 04 STi please advise

I posted a problem the other day and got some great help(jammychap in particular), however the problem i thought had gone hasn't. It's a steering weird thing. Basically i've had it tracked 3 times, swapped wheels around, had Subaru mechanics(this is Tenerife by the way so no doubt they don't have as much of an idea as in the uk), take a look. No crash or bang damage but 2 problems remains.....

When i go to turn, the first quarter turn of the wheel or so, only turns the wheels a small amount, but then after that the wheels turn quicker, as though the ratio changes after the first part of the turn. Now this could help when blasting along, but is it normal. Feels weird at first but i've kinda got used to it, but my head hasn't until someone tells me it's right!

And secondly - the tracking. It's showing ok after adjustments, but it did last week in a different garage. When i drive the wheel sits straight all feels ok. Then i go around right hand bends and when i come out to make the car run straight the wheel has to be over to the right a bit. Then after a left hander it goes back to normal. Bolts have been checked, wheels pulled around, but something ain't right. Any clues?????
Life is one big ride...so ride it!!

The problem could be your Suspension setup. (Toe & camber alignment) not the tracking.

Have a look at this link: http://www.subaru-impreza.org/bbs/sh...ad.php?t=40047
