Also if I am at a standstill and turn the wheel side-to-side quickly there is major power steering lag. In this second scenario I wonder if the belt is slipping on the pulley since they are no longer ribbed.
Anyone else have similar problems? I expected a small degradation in performance but am a bit disappointed.
Yes it's normal. The power steering pump is probably turning slower now because of the pulley.
