What has this got to do with wheel alignment? It's either the steering rack got problem or the front suspension struts got problem.

Otherwise, you may want to describe your situation more specifically.

Both workshop are not confident that after steering rack recondition/replace will definitely solve the problem. :(
At high speed, the steering wheel seem loose though and it's scary

I think I know why the workshops cannot solve the problem. Cos TS can't even describe the problem properly.

I think he went to the wrong ppl to fix his steering issue. This common issue of cannot self center is either caused by the steering rack or the front suspension strut bearings. He has to go to a car mechanic. Going to a wheel alignment tire shop to check wheel alignment has already checked out ok. But solving the steering issue the tire shop ppl aren't confident is because they are not the right ppl to go to.

I think so too.

 

If car can't go straight, there are many reasons. Alignment is just one of them. When steering wheel is fitted back without aligning properly after dismantling, the same can happen too. During alignment, steering wheel not straighten, and do alignment, the alignment also can be not accurate.

 

If steering cannot return, maybe power assisted steering gone also possible. Steering rack jam or gear broken also possible. Everything also can.

 

TS - If steering can't turn, go tyre shop no use. You should go to mechanic.

 

But I think, if you go, you sure kena carrot until.... cause you don't know what's wrong. They can just anyhow ketok you.

ok, maybe I did not explained it clearly. To be more precise, the steering wheel seem to slip when i turn 45 degres. it will slip and make a full lock unless I hold on to the steering wheel tightly.

 

Other then that, when on highway speed, a slight bump will cause the car to slightly lose traction.

 

At first I thought its alignment issue, which is why I went to alignment shop. afterwhich I went to 2 different workshop but none could pinpoint any problem.

 

Am at a lost now :(

Check your steering rack. Got something like a gear in it. I think the gearing is gone. I guess it will only slip to one side?

Hi Guys,

 

I have a similar issue with my Corolla Altis, 2010 Model. Steering wheel alignment done but during driving when car is approaching uneven surface, for e.g a small bump on the road, car will drift to the left - Steering wheel turn left 15 degrees sharply(when front left wheel goes over the bump). Funny thing is when there is a right bump, the drifting is not observable. I went to 2 different car workshops and they cant diagnose it, except one workshop found one of my tire slightly worn out - just hit the safety line which I asked them to do tire rotation. Any recommended workshops before I go to Borneo Motors to resolve this issue?

 

Best Regards,

Mail
