Oh right well good luck with that, im not that way minded to be honest. Ive had issues aswell my steering is terrible had wheels balanced tracking done 2 months ago. The steering makes a loud clicking sound when steering heavy in car parks then when you drive down the road it pulls to that side. But garages say its fine its like your fighting a losing battle!

Had very similar issues with my car. Turned out it was the passenger side brake caliper pistons not retracting very well & stuck sliders. Drivers side had a recent refurbed caliper. I refurbished the stuck caliper (Biggred kit) and all good now. Also check your brake sliders for good movement. Unfortunately some mechanics insist on using copper grease which goes hard overtime and they stick solid. A combination of these things, particularly if it effects one side more than the other, can cause the wheel wobble/vibration/steering issue. This is just from my experience of these brakes but worth a check of yours if not already ruled out.

Thought I would drag this post up as I live relatively close to bury (45mins) in Framlingham. Maybe we could organise a meet with lunch at a pub somewhere. Anyone interested? If so let me know ideas on good places.

So thinking Ipswich might not be a bad place to meet if we get interest? The Orwell truck stop do half decent food and loads of room for cars.
