Heavy Power Steering

Okay so got in my car and after driving my mates Toyota I noticed that my steering seems quite heavy..

checked the power steering fluid etc and all that seems fine..

is the power steering heavy from factory or is there something wrong with it?

I think it has heavier steering than some other cars, what size wheels/tyres do you have as this will impact the feel, if you want to test, get the power steering fluid up to 60-80c and measure the force it takes to turn the wheel with a spring balance, it should be 3.7kg 8.2lbs or less.

I am running 19s and I can't say my steering is any heavier than any other car I have driven, certainly not more than my old R32.
The Skyline (R32) is dead, long live the Skyline (350gt)!
