hi all

just had a little accdent in the ST

hit some oil or somethink on the road and spun the ST around twice and ended up going backwards into a kerb.

The N/S wheel took the brunt of it slight mark on the tyre (just a scuff on the tyre)

do you think its worth popping into fords for a quick look over?

if there is no shake or vibrations through the steering wheel & its not pulling the steerig towards the n/s if you let go of the wheel it is probably ok matey.

As PhilJB says, get tracking AND geometry checked out. Also ask them to just give things a look over while its up on the ramps.

defo worth checking out mate, a bent wishbone or cracked suspension arm could have major implications on the motorway and you may not notice it untill its too late to do anything about it!

focus wishbones tend to bend and crack easily id get it checked becuse if it is cracked all it cpuld take it a pot hole to snap then you will have a bigger prob..... if your not experinceing problems then u should be ok but 100% get it checked over
