Suspension Question!!

4 posts / 699 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. I recently replaced my front suspension with Ireland stage 1 springs, Bilstein sports, ball joints and new bushings. The problem is now the car has a difficult time turning. The steering is VERY hard. Much harder than before replacing all the parts. I figured it would get this way because of the new parts. It has a very tough time turning, especialy to the right, even at speed. I hope I didn't goof up putting everything back together. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this or how I can fix it? Any information would be great! Thanks.

The only reasonable suggestion I can offer is that you may have reassembled the bearings in the upper strut mount incorrectly......

None of the parts your replaced should make a significant difference in the amount of steering effort required.

Agreed. There's a washer that goes between the upper spring perch and the bearing. This allows the bearing to spin free.

Jack the front end up off the ground and check the effort to turn. If is is nice and light lower each wheel in turn and recheck. If it is still hard to turn with the wheels off the ground, start checking component on each side to find the cause of the resistance
