Right, a few things have been niggling me for a couple of weeks, that didnt seem to be there when I first got the car in Jan.
I've got a Sport and recently put on the SRi 16" alloys which are an inch bigger than the standard ones. I thought this would give me more grip, but recently I've been noticing some drift in the rear when I sometimes go round corners. Also when going over bumps in the road or hitting pot holes the steering wheel jerks quite drastically, kinda following the wheel. I know these can be normal, but the force at which it does it seems excessive. Also, sometimes when pulling away, or even accelerating round a corner the car doesnt feel to be following the direction of the wheels.. ie gives the impression of sliding sideways, and generally doesnt fill me with confidence and feel like i'm in control.
Now, I just had the car lowered this week and they advised me to get the tracking checked a couple of days after once its settled as it might knock it out a bit. And it had.. all the problems above were magnified x10, but since i had the tracking done, its as it was.
Does this sound like a problem with the steering, or is it a case of a newbie power steering driver having to get used to it
Sorry for the essay, but its been buggin me. The vagueness of the wheel my old man said was like his power steering in the Omega, but he noticed the drift too which is strange. Much obliged people
