I had the same thing myself, it's gone now that I've replaced all the steering and suspension bushings in the car. Wish I could tell you what one of them did it. ;) I'd check the center link, seems like a probably culprit, among the other things suggested.


out steering the front end. Check the trailing arm bushings, the subframe mounts and the dogbone on the rear. Especially if you have a clunking sound from the rear sometimes on sudden throttle on or off.


The other day I had to use max braking on a uneven road and the car (89 535) pulled sharply to the left. At first I blew it off as a rut in the road or something, but then today, it happened again, only to the right. I also noticed that the steering feels lighter in the center position than it used to, almost a nervous feeling. The front end has new (3 month old) struts, control arms (upper and lower),bushings, outer tie rod ends and was aligned at the dealer. The tires are 235/40-17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GSW's. Any ideas as to what it could be???
