Steering issues

I recently purchased a 2002 GTV 2.0l TS with 36k on the clock. It has a new cam belt and runs well. Although I have noticed a steering shudder under acceleration and braking and the steering wheel does not sit flush with the dashboard when driving in a straight line.

Is this suspension issues?

Re: Steering issues

Not sure about steering judder while accelerating and braking, under braking I would have said check your disks and pads. The steering wheel not being flush? do you mean it's off centre while travelling in a straight line? If this is the case it's probably worth having the wheels balanced and the tracking checked. If you've still got problems after that I suspect it could be something more like worn bushes. HTH
