Laguna RT Steering Problem

Post by bwellard » 03 Feb 2005, 01:47

I have a 1996 1.8l Laguna RT. Recently it has started to pull to the left when the steering wheel is centred and I'm having to steer to the right to compensate. I had the cars tracking checked yesterday using 4 wheel Laser, yet it is all spot on. Tyre pressures are both fine and it has recently had a full service(3 weeks ago) and passed its MOT at the same time, so would've thought worn suspension components should've been identified at the time.. I do have a knocking sound coming from the front suspension which stopped for a few months after I replaced the anti roll bar, but is back again. Any ideas?

Wow, how many decade-plus aged posts are you replying to? please look at the dates before you post... I would imagine this 1996 Laguna is long scrapped by now, even if it were just the bottom ball joints at that time
