If you have cvd joints in the front, you are experiencing Chatter ! The only way to eliminate the problem is to switch from cvd drives to either Lcd drives ,ecs drives, or Dcj drives.....

It will happen again with standard u-joints/cvd's.

If you replace the worn parts it will calm the chatter down but not stop it.That is all i do and its never really bothered me. I do how ever turn my steering travel down to the point that is is actually usable and this is right before the full lock so its not an issue. If you run it round the track and turn it down till you actually notice a difference in your steering. You will be surprised how far it goes before you notice any change.

Hope this helps mate. its how i set mine up and i am happy with it.

It's one of the downsides to having a spool. I just live with it.
