So a little over a month ago I was side swiped from back bumper to front bumper. She hit me going about 40-45. Needless to say it destroyed my whole right side of my car. After taking it to the repair shop I got it back and noticed two problems right away. 1 my steeringwheel gets very small vibrations and kinda bounces on its own. I really don't think it did this before the wreck. 2. Whenever I hit my brakes my car swerves pretty hard to the right. They told me this was do to my brakes being bad, and insurance won't cover them because it was bad before the wreck. This seems very odd to me because my brakes wouldn't have just gotten that bad at the same time. Its been to 4 shops to get alignment checked. My car pulls straight when i stomp on it. Could new brakes fix both issues?
Yeah im not real knowledgable about cars but essentially the steering wheel just shakes. They checked the steering rack said it was fine. She hit the front right wheel hard enough to break off a piece of my rim. They say everything is straight though. The wheel movement is real minimal and doesnt always happen. I may just have no noticed it before. The braking is my main concern.
