Front of car all over the place :(

Hi gents

at high speeds the front of my car would drift from one side to the other and i would have to constantly correctthe steering so i would go in a straight line.
I thought it was some problem on the steering colum or other problem on the steering part, but after close inspection i discovered it was a "very" bad rubber mount of the left wishbone, you could move it with your hand.
After renewing the 4 rubber mounts (needed a torch to remove the old ones) of the left wishbone "voilá", no more front drift, the steering is tight and no more correcting tranjectories!

Just for all you "drifters" out there, this can be your problem too, i thougt it was a steering prob but ended up beeing a suspension problem, he he he
