My Mk2f used to suffer from some pretty 'fun' torque steer - caused, I assumed, by the fact that one TCA-ARB bush was all but disintegrated and the other a totally different shape/make. After replacing the TCAs and ARB and getting the tracking done the front end feels great but on the first motorway drive today its evident the torque steer is not only back but different and in the opposite direction! On hard acceleration or deceleration (I assume shifting enough of the car's weight around) the steering bias feels to swap sides - it almost feels like one wheel shifts ahead of the other on deceleration and then the other way round on acceleration if that makes sense? The old torque steer was a momentary impulse that needed to be countered - this feels more like a constant bias. I assume this is likely to be the alignment of the ARB in its bushes or the castor angles or a combination of the two. How should I go about adjusting this? Or have I got this all backwards and there's something else at play? Anyone else gone through this?
