A good garage can make driving a pleasure again, if you are experiencing play in your steering wheel, a pull to the left or right, or just a bit too much wobble.
For good driving performance, the steering on a car should be free of play, with a quick response to the turn of the wheel. If something unforeseen happens and you need to manoeuvre quickly, effective steering also ensures your safety.
Slippery roads or not, driving and steering should always be as skid-resistant as possible, having the steering and wheels aligned correctly will reduce chances of skidding. However, it's not just wheel alignment that reduces skidding, you should also be aware of the tie rod ends, ball joints, front wheel bearings, the rack and pinion unit, track control arms or strut inserts. Check for worn or defective parts and areas, after many miles of travel it's likely that you will need to make sure you have them repaired or replaced.
