    Steering problem after drive shaft change.

    Not sure if this is related to the new drive shaft i just fitted but either just before or when i fitted it the steering on my GSi went really loose.

    There is a hum from the road noise, like a whiring noise and when i hit bump or track in the road the car seems to pull into it for example on the motorway it pulls into the tracks where lorrys have been in the inside lane. Also, if i turn either way the steering seems to get sharper for a second or 2 and the car has to be corrected all the time just to stay in a true line.

    Any thoughts on what this could be? Any help much appreciated!

    Have you had the wheel alignment/tracking checked since you rebuilt everything?
