@Technohead.....being a woman, mechanics often try to rip me off...silly, I got the internet and this forum. The pitman arm looks perfectly okay to me and I'm still driving the car, nothing broken off yet
. He did say the steering arm needs replacing, excuse my ignorance but I can't find a part called that in my manual....maybe he meant the control arm
, but he did say that the lower control arm needs replacing too. The only reason I took it in was because it pulls quite strongly to the right if I let go of the wheel an a little while back I was doing 120km/hour and it got a damn scary wobble....death wobble?
