After installing two new Lower Control Arms, sway control arm links and bushings the car now has a steering slack of about 10 degrees left and right of center. This slack is present with car static engine off, static engine on or while driving but, the car seems to track straight.
Car may have been driven some years, inadvertently, with bad rearmost bushings (vertical bolt one) on both sides. Decided to have new LCAs.

Car won't go above 25-30 mph
Our PT cruiser was running hot. We took it to a garage & we had to have the radiator replaced. A few days after the radiator was replaced, my husband attempted to check the oil & found that the dipstick was broken. Could that have occurred when the radiator was replaced? The garage said that couldn't have happened since the radiator was pulled from below.
my vehicle has been having issues with the steering and handling for about the last 6 months.It' hard to keep it from being "all over the place" especially with freeway driving.
