    confused Strange ARB issue

    Had the anti rollbar bushes changed today by local garage and peace is restored to the front,however although the car drives as before the steering wheel is slightly off kilter,can't think why.Maybe the bushes need to settle in but I didn't think the anti rollbar moved.
    Any theories?
    cheers

    It was probably quite worn before, and steering alignment was probably done while worn, not is back to beign sturdy, maybe another alignment might be in order to make sure your tyres don't wear uneven.

    They probably had to remove the control arms for the steering, these garages seem totally incompetent in giving you a car back that drives in a straight line.

    Every car ive owned that has ever been in for any work involving the steering mechanicals has come back pulling to the left!!!

    Right, I just spoken to the chap and it seems that in the process of changing the ARBs and moving part of the subframe it can put the steering wheel slightly out if it isn't put back exactly,doesn't affect the alignment,the car is still true to the straight.Iam taking it back next week to get it adjusted so all should be fine.The guy who owns the garage came very well recomended as he is a bit of a car nut himself and honest,good price too an hours labour(£50)plus the bushes.
