    Wheels Straight, Steering Wheel 1/8th off Centre!

    Just reversed out of a car park at sainsburys and was looking in the rear and forgot the concrete column beside me. The car struck it but not the body but the wheel on full lock. Luckily no damage to the car apart from the steering is now off centre. Wheels straight but the steering wheel is about 1/8th off centre. Drives fine apart from this. What do i need to do to fix it? I have no cluncks, no bangs, oh, the traction control light is on tho! Really pissed at myself Luckily the misses said nothing!

    maybe a bent track rod nick ?? plus sounds like you may have damaged the hub because is there not sensors in there for the traction control ? did damage the alloy ?
