RE: [DML] Re: Steering alignment



The problem is not the tyre alignment.  I had it all set up correctly so
that to drive straight I had the steering wheel level and if I let go of the
wheel there was no pull left or right.

My problem is that to drive straight now I have to have the steering wheel
slightly off level (to the right) and when I let go of the wheel there is
still no pulling left or right.

Its as if someone has removed the steering wheel and moved it round a couple
of spleens.

My only reason for removing it in the first place was cos the previous owner
had taken it off and put it back on so far off that you could not read the
speedo.

Thanks

Check the air pressure in your tires. The road surface has a lot to do
with how the steering "feels". If you still have "wander" go to an
alignment shop with the specs and have them check it out. It can be
bad tires, worn parts, bent parts, or just a minor toe adjustment. You
should not be pulling the steering wheel off to center the wheel. It
is more properly done with the tie rod ends so you actually ARE
centered and have the same turning radius left to right.
