I recently slid side on into a kerb with my front passenger wheel on a corner during the heavy snow I wasn't going more than 20-25mph and the impact wasn't massive. The car still drives but the steering is way off. To go straight I have to turn the steering wheel to about 1 o'clock. I got new tyres today and when the front wheels were off I noticed that the track rod is bent. Is it possible to change this separate from the rack or do I now need a whole new rack? Any suggestions/replies would be much appreciated!

Hi Gary,

Im sure that you can get the track rod ends separatley, as per most cars, they are easy to change but its trying to get the wheel geometry set up, with the new track rod end.
