[DML] Re: Steering alignment

The problem IS alignment. If it was properly set up the steering wheel
would have been centered. It is a very common mistake (short cut) to
only adjust the toe at one of the tie rod ends. Doing this throws the
centering of the steering wheel off. To properly set toe you MUST
adjust both sides equally to keep the steering wheel straight.
Removing the steering wheel to center it causes you to have less
turning radius on one side and more on the other. The steering rack is
also offcenter. Find a shop that knows what they are doing. The first
step is to center the rack and put the steering wheel on correctly.
Now you can adjust the toe.
