gti mk6 - 1 sec delay from turning steering wheel to car turning

Hi, il try to explain as best i can. I have a golf mk6 gti 2011, when i turn the steering wheel fast, theres a small delay of about 1 second to the car turning in that direction. This makes the handling realy unstable when turning the wheel fast to the opposite sides. If i do this fast enough, for example fast to the left and back fast to the right, then the car is actualy steering to the left when im turning fast to the right again, because of the delay. Eh, you see what i mean?
It makes the car realy unstable, and actualy a bit dangerous.
Is there a mod, or something i can do to make this better?
and.. im not talking about steering wheel free play
Thank you for any reply

Did you change/adjust the struts and shocks in any way? Depending on which settings were adjusted and if the rebound was adjusted full stiff, it can give you that feelin of delay during transition.

The car is all stock except ecu tuning. I have never modified anything, dont know if the previous owner did anything. I have had the car a couple years, and first now i have some money to do some modifications. I have already bought new performane clutch from sachs, eibach b12 pro suspension kit, new oem strut mounts, and the GFB’s DV+ T9351. Its in my garage and ready to be taken to the body shop that wil install everything for me.

Im willing to do whatever it takes to fix this problem, im on a budget, but i want to fix the driveability. Im also thinking on ordering the superpro front lower control arms kit ALOY0001K, should i maybe include the ball joints? the car has gone 88000k.

I may be able to take a video, il try to make a video asap

edit: il also make the body shop perform a wheel alignment

Politely I call bull. The is a physical mechanical link between the steering wheel and the rack. What you are describing is not possible on a mk6 gti.

In for video! Sounds like you are simulating drunk driving without being drunk
