RE: [DML] Pulling to the left and to the right ....steering rack issue?



Right about the time my Delorean was rolling off the line I was driving
a Chevy in Virginia which started with these same symptoms.  I thought
it could wait a while but once it started it got bad very quickly.  I
actually drove the car down a country road for repairs with more than
two full revolutions of play in the wheel between nudging the car right
or left.  Don't wait - get it to a good shop now.

DeLorean steering should be as good as any car on the road.

This is another case where you need to stop driving the car until you
figure out what is wrong.  There are several things that may be the
issue - steering rack, rack ends, ball joints, bushings, steering column
u-joints, alignment, tires, wheel bearings, frame rust, lower control
arms, and even the trailing arm bolts.  Any good alignment shop should
be able to sort this out.
