Durametric (enthusiast at least) can not on the 958. Really annoying.

I've been driving around on Low and Normal and it seems to handle that okay although it's not always that level. I really goofed up the other weekend coming back from Sebring, though.

I have always suspected that the servo motor is adding too much locking and that's what causes the grind. Unfortunately there's no real easy way to test this without splicing wires and hooking up a...
