Steering wheel extremely loose!!

Hey guys I notice that my steering wheel is extremely loose, when i say loose i mean that its really effortless to turn, i find that when im making a sharp turn i end up at the limit real easy. Seems really loose for a honda power steering system, almost feels like an old GM. Any idea's? will eliminating the pwr steering make it a little more firm?

You got too much neg camber on the fronts so it's easy to turn the wheels. I had a same type of problem when I was lowered alot with any camber adjustment and now that I've rasied the car to near stock height it's much harder to turn the wheels.

alignment is fine, and as for camber the pic in my sig is deceiving, its a photchop, the cars not that low, but i do have skinny 185-65-14's on the car which might be the cause, i'll have to see when i get some rims if it makes a difference. Thanks.
