    Default Snow + Ice = BANG

    Slid into the kerb this morning in the snow , iwas doing about 10 mph and hit the kerb with a fair old pelt , fortunatly the caravan job i do gives me full access to a MOT style 4 post ramp .So up she went

    All is ok underneath as i got several opinions, nothing bent, broken or twisted ........

    But one thing has changed , when driving my steering wheel now sits at 10 too and 20 past instead of quarter too and quarter past ,

    it drives fine no knocking , no noise or anything abnormal .

    any ideas Guys

    forgot to say , made a mess of the alloys (n/s impact)

    As already said, more than likely the track rods. I did exactly the same as you, by the sounds of it, in my last car (Astra G) and mullered them and numerous other bits - lower arm, wheel, shock etc.! Worth checking everything over again as often it's not noticeable at first sight.
