Heavy steering

Hi guys,

I have noticed the last week or so the steering on my FN2 go a bit on the heavy side, especially at low speed. Checked tyre pressures etc.. all is fine. Wondered what would be the next thing to check? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you. Sounds logical Tempted to take it to Kwik Fit up the road from me to check alignment/tracking. Unless anyone advises to take it elsewhere?

I'd go elsewhere - ideally a professional alignment company. Kwik Fit have got it wrong on occasion, mainly because their kit is almost never calibrated properly.

I did think that would be answer! I will have a look see what I can find near me.

depends some have the new laser alignment tools, which are pretty good... just the operator needs telling what it should be... not the computers figures..

Yeah I suppose...and there could well be some skilled technicians working at these places it would be unfair to generalise. Anyone from the west London area? Where do you take your pride and joys to get work done?
