a car that handles better
has to be safe
glad you are finding the faults
and fixing them when you can
Hi chain rattle,
replaced the strut bar bushings and had the toe adjusted again.
Everything is fine now.
Hardly noticeable wobble at 80kmph (50 mph).
Either the tyres or that┤s just how it is.
Hardly noticeable wobble on good road
and no noticeable wobble on bad road.
I guess due to worn out strut bar bushings the toe
became wrong and the wobble then wore out
the idler arm bushings - to make things even worse.
The previous owner didn┤t give a damn I guess ....
(First thing I did was change ALL belts - including both timing belts -
found out he changed the timing belts (with non original - I used mitsu parts)
and that he was to cheap to change the alternator belt at the same time -
which was REALLY worn out and close to ripping.
P.S.: Will post again when I change all 5 tyres
