Scary night update

Just a thought, I would check the tie rod joints and power steering 
linkages, just in case. I had a tie-rod disconnect itself on my CQ (due 
to a dodgy re-install by me, oops!) and surprisingly it was still 
driveable for quite some time. Steering felt weird, but it seemed to 
quite happily drag around the loose wheel, and castor seemed to align it 
just fine in normal driving.

Surprised the heck out of me that such a major error, took so long to 
actually stop me driving the car.
I was checking suspension and wheels as well.

Unlikely, but if everything else looks solid, it may be worth checking.
