    Default Track rods?

    My Vectra seems to tram line badly so I had the tracking done and it went back 3 times. The last time all was well until I accidently wheel spun out of a junction, now it tramlines again. Any ideas what to change...track rod ends?

    Was it 4 wheel alignment you had done? Waht size are your tyres?

    Steve,

    This seems a common problem. I had my rod ends changed and it sorted out my problems. Cheap to do (Part about £20 and 1/2 labour or D.I.Y if your happy enough).

    It is not too difficult to change the track rod ends. But you will need to get the car tracked after you change them though.

    If it was just a track rod I would do it myself but the steering rack is loose. Hopefully get it sorted under Network Q warranty.
