    Default Trouble with car after parts fitted at garage.

    Hi guys,

    I had my car into the local garage for service, MOT and parts fitting (Front & Rear Drop Links, Genuine VX Front and Rear ARB Bush). The garage had some trouble fitting the front ARB bush, as the anti roll bar was 25mm and the front bush (2 piece kit) was 23mm, the mechanic has spoken to vauxhall about this, it is right bush for my car but its the same bush for all the other anti roll bar sizes 23mm 24mm and 25mm.
    He got it fitted in eventually but he had to drop the sub frame and steering rack to do this. So i got the car back and i noticed the steering wheel is not centre when going straight, its actually quite far out to the right, so what has he done to get my steering wheel so far out?

    Cheers.

    Do drop the subframe ec. this joint need to be detach. So when you atachet back have to straight the steering wheel firts.
    When you move the wheel lft-rig you will see how is move. Go back to them and ask to fix it
