before you take the wheel off do you have both adjustable track rods? or one fixed one?
if theyre both adjustable i would definately be taking it back to the garage as they can adjust it to suit so the wheel is straight.
Just had a look and it seems to be one fixed one - my car is a GT '88 plate without power steering. Did the non-power steering cars have the fixed and the power steering the adjustable?

dont know but i changed mine to an adjustable one so it could be set properly, that means then you will need to take the wheel off to correct it.


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!
