    Afternoon people

    Got a slight thud/knocking feeling coming through the steering wheel when straightening up after turning left. It only happens when iv turned the wheel left. No thud on full lock either.

    Could this be rack related as i have had a slight leak for a while and have been topping up fluid every couple of months.
    :think:

    any ideas?
    thanks

    I would check the springs are still in one peice and that the top suspension bush/ bearings are still sat correctly and even,

    arb drop links? bushes perhaps

    maybe the bearings on the ball joints too but wouldnt that give a screech rather than a thud?
