    Tracking.
    But if your lowering your car anyway I recommend you put the suspension on then have the tracking sorted. As according to eibachs website you should have the tracking checked after lowering the car.

    Is it pulling loads to the left?

    Coz a know that cars do pull to the left just a little (a security feature incase you fall asleep at the wheel)/

    Can also be mistaken for the camber of the road if it's only slight.

    Most likely cause will be tracking, or excess wear on one of the tyres would also cause it

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Yeah when you boot your car, it has got bd Torque steer.

    If your sitting at a stand still ok (try this on an open road) first gear and accelerate as if you were like starting a race (take both hands off the steering wheel) and your car steering wheel will turn to the left.

    Don't know exactly what the problem is but its the same as many others.
