Driving yesterday at 70-75mph down to Brighton, I noticed that level of steering wheel was not horizontal with the dashboard, and was dropping 2-3 inches to the right.

Can't specifically recall how long this has gone unnoticed as 50% of driving isn't on straight roads etc.

Indy got it up on ramp this morning and said everything looked fine and did have a spin round the block saying it didn't seem right, but I shouldn't worry until May when car goes in for MOT & service.

He did say there may be a slight bend in steering arms or joints may have worn down, but nothing to worry about.

When turned on left full lock, wheel hits either bodywork or wing shielding.

Only time I think could have caused this is during the snow a couple weeks ago I had trouble parking car on a sideways slope where all 4 wheels slid sideways into a kerbside.

Does anyone have any further advise or experience on this please.
