Track control arm bushes? Road camber also causes this on all cars.

Re: 5 cyl 2 litre MAREA wanders

welcome to the forum wheels could have been balanced by a monkey, tyre presures checked with what? garage gauges and them punps that plug in fag lighter are often wrong.

I also use one of those small digital hand-held tyre pressure gauges! In Halfrauds for about a fiver.

I never rely on the air compressor guage, which tends to be way out.

Re: 5 cyl 2 litre MAREA wanders

Hi Mike and welcome to our forum.

Check the suspension for signs of damage, you can get tracking set up correctly and still have a bent wishbone. Check all suspension bushes. Check bearings front and back and also brakes for binding.

Don't want to scare you but check the chassis to see if its bent. Another one that may sound silly, check that your new tyres are all the same size/spec.

Bleed your power steering. With engine running and handbrake on go from full lock to full lock several times then check fluid levels.

Good luck, get back to us with any new info.
