steering problem
 
hello everyone,

I have a problem with the steering in my 03 qc hemi. It pulls quite hard to the passenger side. At first I thought it was a caliper seized up. New pads and rotors 2 weeks ago. I knew rotors were warped, but still same problem. I am also experiencing a wobble in the steering wheel after and while exiting slight curves in the road. especially while coming out of a roundabout. not quite sure what it is. I got under the truck and everything i could pull on was tight.

Did you replace the calipers and hoses? A caster, camber or tire problem could also cause a pull like that.

Have you tried to get an alignment done? That sometimes fixes a problem like that. If it really pulls then it may be a camber problem. Try to get an alignment done for $60 and then go from there

yeah i haven't had an alignment done yet. It just happened withing the past 3 months. I am the only one that drives it and I know I haven't hit anything or gone through any huge pot holes that would cause the alignment to go off. Does alignment just go off like that without any causes? I just replaced the pads and rotors. calipers seemed fine, no binding or seizing at all, the piston went back nice and smooth. I am thinking about taking my truck to this guy http://www.canalignment.com/aboutus.htm he is about 45 mins from me, and a local sponsor on my other board. Just afraid he might be really expensive. Do you guys think thats a bit overkill?

Overkill? Not at all. I think this i just the guy you want looking at a potential alignment problem. It seems to me his pre-alignment inspection will be second to none.
