Rear wheel steering - Hawkeye

Hi,

I've got an 07 Hawkeye thats started rear wheel steering when I turn right - not fun on icy back roads!

I suspected the left rear damper so have fitted a low mileage second hand pair and also new anti roll bar bushes. Its made no change unless the new dampers are dead too. All the other bushes seem tight with no noticeable play.

I've got winter tyres and wheels fitted but have swapped back to originals with no improvement in handling.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what fixed it. My next resort is brand new dampers but would like a second opinion first!

Thanks,

Alex

Hi,

Drop link bushes changed too along with ARB bushes. All other bushes appear ok with minimal movement. I'll check the front and rear tracking tomorrow at work.

It's getting a bit annoying!!

lateral arm or trailing arm bushes would be my guess.
