floating feeling when conering?

9 posts in this topic

hello folks a bit of a strange one here.

like the title says really when cornering when the weight and pressure is on the drivers side the the same side feels a bit kind of floating and dont feel stable. i think that describes it well.

this is on sweeping bends not tight corners.it almost kind of dont feel safe, but is cos the car dont slide or move.

the near side feels fine when cornering when pressure is on the near side.

any ideas please?

it might be the anti roll bushes worn, if you can get it up on a ramp and check all the rubber bushes for wear.

hello yes sounds logical. would it pass a mot if there were on the way out? cos the car has got 12 months.

do you know if it is a big job money wise?

also are anti roll bushes on both rear and front of the car?

i am thinking the floating feeling seems all the drivers side. not specific to front or rear feeling.

if the car has 12 months ticket the bushes should be ok as they would have been checked,if they were badly worn you would also get a occasional knocking as well, your best bet would be to get all the bushes, droplinks and suspension checked for any loose or worn componants as an inspection is the only sure way to diagnose any problems.
