Wondering if anyone can help.


When cruising in a straight line, the steering wheel needs to be pointed a little left to go straight.
If i brake, i can feel a slight change and the steering wheel needs to be pointed a tiny bit more to the left to go straight.
If i accelerate the steering wheel needs to be dead straight to go straight...

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Within the last few weeks I've replaced upper wishbones, arb drop links, shock absorbers and front tyres.
The car has been 4 wheel aligned after all that (hunter alignment)

I suspect the lower wishbones, although i changed these about 2-2 1/2 years ago. They do seem to have a little play, i wouldnt say excessive.

Any other thoughts on what i can check before i buy new lower wishbones?

Change the Steering Tie Rods. They probably have play in them or the rack has...

Nope, no play in them. Were changed not to long ago, and checked them when changing the wishbones the other week. I can't feel any play in the rack either. Inner tie rods were changed a couple of years ago too.

Any other ideas? :confused:
