Hi all, got a strange problem
Driving my car on a flat road, if I let go of the wheel it will veer to the left. I thought it was just an alignment issue, so I had the wheel alignment done, and it still veers to the left!
I've also noticed, if I turn the wheel right, then let it go it will very quickly turn back to center. However, when turning left then letting go, the wheel very slowly and sluggishly comes back to center, and never returns to dead center. Always slightly to the left.
I was wondering if it could be a caster issue, however it seems Astra's have a fixed caster...?
Any idea's what would cause such a steering problem?? would it be strut top bearings?
Note - I've also noticed the inside of the front wheels are now wearing VERY quickly. I had new tyres put on the car about 2 months ago and now they are almost bald on the inside
Any advice you could give me, or possible area's of where to look would be greatly appreciated!
