Help Symptoms of bad wishbones?


I have read a lot about the wishbone problems with the Alfa 155.

I would like to know what the symptoms are for bad wishbones. Do you feel it all time when you are driving your car or just when you are going left or right? Can you hear it?

I feel that when I steer to the left, let's say in a roundabout, that the right tire is following the track correctly. It feels like it wants to go a little bit more or a little bit less to the left (hard to explain when English is not your mother language).

I hope some of the specialist can give me an explanation.

Sounds like your tracking may be out.
One symptom of knackered wishbone bushes is you will probably hear a "clunk" as you go over bumps etc.
