its the steering that fills me with rage.

feels so unpredictable, shake steering wheel left to right and it always knocks (has got louder)

and when travelling along it feels as if wheels are moving about a bit and its not coming back thru steering.

its pulls left and right alot, as u turn steering wheel back after turning sometimes it feel light sometimes heavy.

just follows the road alot, and suddenly dives left or right, also loses traction on front wheels alot going round tight bends

felt like just spanking it into a ditch at lunch, is that annoying

any help?

go doen the motor factors and get...

2 balljoints and 2 trackrod ends try them first and eliminate them

then get the tracking done on a fourwheel lazer alignment machine....

if the problem is still there then i'd look at the wheel barings.....

tracking should be alright as it was done when suspension was fitted, i had hoped that it would go away with new suspension

are trackrod ends and balljoints much and hard to replace?

i'd be 70% sure its not the rack... i know it may feel that way but its not...

if it is... i seen a brand new non-pas rack for 13 this morning....

balljoints and track rod ends... depends were you get them... vaux will rape you for them...

u'd get the whole lot from a good motor factors for 40 ish... vaux would probably be about 45 for one balljoint

Mine is the same. Tramlines far far too much, the ride is terrible - any bumps on cornering completely cause the car to lose grip as it skits/jumps off across the surface.

Ive got 195/45/15 (I think) and otherwise its standard. I can corner faster in my girlfriend's Ka which has pizza wheels. Something like 165/60/14 []

Its been tracked but tracked in compensation for a bent trackrod. It pulls to one side but wears tyres evenly. So I reckon that is at least one source of its abysmal handling.
