Steering / Tracking problem

4 posts in this topic

With the snow and ice around on the roads at the moment, my Focus skidded on ice and hit a curb (front on).

Steering seems to be a bit off so I've taken it to the garage who have advised that I need the following fixed:

Lower Arm

Track Rod End

2 Rear Tie Rods

Rear Anti Roll Bar drop link

A bit strange as to why the rear has a problem but can anyone tell me if the above list looks feasible or am I being taken for a ride..?

Cheers.

Nope looks about right to me. The jolt at the front could be transmitted through the whole car. Body reacts, back wheels got grip, bits on rear get damaged too.

Looks as though the 'rear' problems were general wear and tear and not caused by the shock of impact.

Cheers.
