164 Cloverleaf 24v Wishbone renewall
I have recently been experiencing the following problems with my 1995 164 QV.
On acceleration from 40-50mph in top gear, the steering wheel pulled to the left and the car veered to the right. It needed two new front tyres, so I put it down to that and got the tracking done at the same time. Anyway, after a couple of attempts to get the car set up, it became apparent there was another problem. With the car up in the air we were able to wobble the N/S front wheel and saw the play in the wishbone.
So, it's new wishbone and ball joint time! It is all getting changed at the weekend and, hopefully, this will make the car feel much nicer to drive!
I just wanted to ask if there was anything else to be changed or to worry about while the old girl is in bits. I'm hoping not and this will make a big difference. I thought it best to change both sides while up in the air as the total cost for the parts was only £150.
Thoughts and comments appreciated....
