No uneven tyre ware, however its does pull "slightly" to the left after a couple of hard accelerating (redline) events from 1st through to 3rd gears, but not noticeable when cruising (I'm thinking that something is possibly worn in the drivetrain/gearbox, but no notchy gear changes at all).
I am a little confused about the drop links instructions though, they are attached to the A/B bar right? You mentioned the pushing down on the wishbones which threw me a little.....will have to check it out. I was under the impression that the AB bar needs to be disconnected in order to replace the drop links, but obviously a noobie here so not certain on that.
Since I got the car I have replaced the sump, wishbones, clutch, shocks along with stiffer springs, but its still not quite right at medium to high speeds. Within 2 weeks Im changing the discs and pads all round to uprated jobbies. After that its the dreaded clutch master cylinder and along with that I want to change the drop links. Still in two minds as to whether to change just the link rods or buy a whole new steering rack and pay for it to be fitted, folloing the above.
Not happy with the drivetrain + engaging gears and how it affects the steering, it jerks too much on engage for my liking and then torque steers slightly under hard acceleration. There is play in the clutch pedal when pushed by hand until it meets resistance (about 1-2cm), my old motor had the same problem but not as bad I felt, thus the clutch master cylinder change.
Its a 7+ yrs old car, so I know it will never be pin point handling but I want it tightened up as much as poss. especially the drive train and the way the clutch engages.
I know, I know, alot of stuff mentioned here, but doing as much as I can afford each month.
