Re: dodgy steering

Hi all glad most of you have sorted their problems, however i have a strange one for you's.

1.2 16v on a 51 plate Ive only had it for a few weeks. Anyway when pulling away the front wheels seemed very loose and rattley - so I put new wishbones and new rollbar bushes on both sides. Seems slightly better but not perfect.

The steering is hard to explain - when travelling at 60 or 70 it drives very straight, however when you input on the steering wheel it feels like you got to get it out of a groove before any effects happen to the wheels. - I changed both TR ends but still the same.
I need it fixed before I let the missus out in it, after all I bought it for her lol.
Any ideas of what i can check ? Whats the steering racks, column, Track rods like on these things ? its done approx 110k
Cheers Lee
