    That will be why you keep going through tyres then. Track rod end to you and me.

    it sounds more like a tie rod, which goes between the rack and the track rod end, its about £20 from the dealers, but you will need to get the tracking re done,

    To check you'll need a mate to help. Turn the steering fully inwards, with the engine running. Now look for the rod that connects to the Hub and grab the bit nearest the wheel, past the threaded rod. Get your mate to rock the steering, not a lot just from 5 past to 5 to. If it is the track rod end thats knackered you will feel a knocking.
