Hi all,

silly question time........
How tight do the drop link nuts have to be tightened because i replaced them about 6 months ago and the car handling has become steadily worse when going around corners.

What condition are the wishbones in? Are the bushes still tight.

not sure on the torque settings, but fairly tight

Can't see them making that much difference. What are you experiencing?

Could be the wishbones as Jack suggests or perhaps the rear trailing arms.

The car seems to wander when going around corners/roundabouts, in general a lot of under steer.

They do understeer. What tyre pressures are you running? Are you sure it's the front end running wide and not the rear trying to step out? Sorry if that's a daft question considering your post about "understeer", just checking :D

I cant really put my finger on it but it does feel different somehow.
Tonight though i have noticed the nearside shock appears to be leaking slightly.
