Okay, 2.5 million fluid - isn't that like packing it with Vasoline petroleum jelly? Has anyone done that - if so, did it work, would petroleum jelly ruin anything? (sorry for the stupid questions - I have no idea what 2.5 million fluid viscosity is like)

I'm working on a "home brew" steering solution - will post photos and information later if it works out. I was very unhappy and surprised when I discovered how much slop exists in the OEM steering setup - seems like an engineering/design error?
