Re: STILL have steering issues

Like Noel said, has it had damage.
The front of the subframe has large locating pins on it's top side. These are a tight fit in the chassis.
If it's had a whack on one side it would probably push the whole subframe and both chassis rails over to one side.
The subframe looks pretty strong. The chassis doesn't though.

Maybe one of the 4 wheel laser alignment checks could pick up on your problem or at least tell you whether it's a problem on one side only.
