    Default Any suggestions...

    I've had the misfortune of hitting a deep pothole and a kerb in the same day yesterday on the way to work.

    When driving home I actually pulled over becuase I thought I had a flat tyre, the steering felt heavy and the car felt like it was struggling.

    It was like driving into a very strong oncoming wind or like driving with the handbrake partly on, the car usually feels like its gliding along freely.

    I've checked the tyre pressures and there all fine, not really sure what to look for next? Tracking maybe?

    Any help would be great.

    You May have bent a link arm it's the large plate that bolts to main frame with damping bushes.it's a triangular shape manufactured from aluminium that the suspension leg bolts to,if so it will be putting a load on the drive shaft giving you the feeling of looseing power.
    do a visual inspection of the link and measure the distance between the tyre tread and the rear of the wheel arch,check that both sides are equal measurments
