checking the steering rack bush is easier if u can see it from the top plus no need to spend RM60 which can fuel me to work for around 5 weeks.Maybe due to wide tyre I think, because Mark X car same age as my car not having problem with steering bush rack yet. My car milage not even 100k yet some more. Maybe good idea to do balancing and alignment first? RM60 at most i think?
Start the engine and have someone to turn the steering left and right...no need to turn much 90 degree left and right will do. U peek under the bonet and see if there is excessive movement of the steering rack.
Allignment cost will depend on what/how many parameter needs to be adjusted. Without getting on the allignment computer, u will never know.
