Hi, the handling on my '94 1.8ts, can be described as wooley. I can't quite figure out the problme though, as it has only done 34k from new, so i would'nt really expect the ball joints etc to be worn. I think you can tell if you jack the car up at the front and rock the wheels, then any free play should be apparent. I think! Or am i thinking of something else? What wheels and tyres have you got? I have just fitted a set of 16" speedlines with part worn P7000's and the handling was atrocious! The bl**dy thing wanted to tramline, pulled every which way under acceleration and braking and all sorts of funny stuff. I checked the pressures and increased them by about 5-6psi and solved the problems!!! No understeer, no oversteer, no nothing!! I'd check them first.
