Had a close one last night!
I was on my way home from the mums last night on the local a52 road when I nearly had an almost unexplainable accident. I was going around a bend not sharp but more of a mid length sweeping left at approx 40mph, I changed from 2nd to 3rd and just blipped the throttle when the front started to oversteer and the rear end started to slide!
I kept away from the barrier , the traction kicked in nicely and I just missed the kerb :-). I was puzzled to what had happened so I spun around and went back checked the road , there was no diesel or oil visible on the road and it wasn't wet with outside temps of approx 4 degrees.
Jacked my car up today , whipped all four wheels off and had a look......... I've got decent tyres all round, suspension seemed ok, springs fine, arb fine ect. Then just when I was going to give up I see a power flex bush on the rear driver side just the one! Check passenger side there is another power flex bush but in a different place!
I've got 2 odd and non paired power flex bushes on my car , so my question is ( I think I already know the answer) would this cause the car to act how it did?
