Idea Re: Car awful to drive, all over the road!! (tracking)??

It sounds like it could be wishbone wear. Also, what is the tyre wear like. If the fronts already show inner shoulder wear, that can produce some interesting results.

What was the tracking set to? From my experience, you can throw the factory settings away, and set it as 2-3mm toe-in or about 20min toe-in rather than the specced toe-out settings. Most people on here will suggest parallel, but this is still not right from my experience.
