    Well i won't bore you with the stuff i've already done, as most of you have been following my threads, but toiday after fitting a new lemforder drop link i checked the passenger wheel for play, as you are aware i replaced the wishbone with a meyle unit and had it aligned as the ball joint was creaking when i turned, and it was shot, but the problem was still there!
    So i noticed the same rocking in the wheel as before, but this time it only moved side to side, and not up and down. so i removed the rubber from the rack and saw the inner ball moving in and out of the rack. so luckily i have another 1 from the rack i took off earlier in the year. i prept that today and got it all freed off ready to fit tomorrow. So expect another how to
    Thats all for now.

    well been to white rose toda and i can say that i have never driven this car as straight as it was today! even though i know the tracking is a little out it still never pulled all over when i crossed the white lines!, so i am now going to get her all tracked up and enjoy the ride for the first time since owning the car!

    woot
    (incidentally, if you try and put woot into spell check it comes out as foot...which can be confusing)
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
