Front wheels skipping

My 2001 Doblo 1.9d elx has just developed a strange fault .I have been doing a little bit of trailer towing, nothing drastec but at times a little heavy. Today on turning right the front wheels felt like they where skipping out and on investigation found that the wheels are misaligned by a few degrees. Ok in a straight line but go misaligned when turnig steering. Any ideas please?

Re: Front wheels skipping

Thanks for reply but no potholes or kerbs involved. It does need a lower ball joint replacing but that has'nt popped out.

Re: Front wheels skipping

Got the car to my local garage and found the syncromesh in gear box was broken. So new one, new clutch and front brakes and 800 later back on road in two days. Now the front left window not working due to bottom plastic component on channel broke, new one on order.
