Steering issue

Post by Big Eb »

Evening all again.
Decided to change engine mount bushes top and bottom as steering was pulling to left and right when accelerating as if you gone down a pot hole, noticed that the bushes were badly disintegrated and they had quite a bit of play in them,so thinking it was the issue,now replaced but still seems to pull, any one had this issue or have any ideas what the problem could be.
Thanks. Eb

Also, don't dismiss the possibility a slightly binding brake caliper on the side it's pulling to... I've had that too...

Feel the wheels after a run. If one feels warmer than the other then that'll be it...

Funny you should say that, did notice one side was rather warm,but this issue occurs when you give it a bit of Welly and it jerk's to right or left, would this be part of the same issue.

Very much so, the more welly you give it the more pronounced it will be...
