Alignment and Suspension Issues!!! Please Help!
I recently got my car back from a body shop. They did a great job on all the body work, car looks sexy and paint is matched AMAZING!
Ok, now on to the real topic. My car doesnt drive right. They had it for two months and had plenty of time to pay attention to detail. The frame wasnt bent at all, no chassis damage. They replaced my R/F Lower control arm, and My powersteering pump and pulley and belt. (other than that it was body work..wheels & tires). Also, the wheels I have are Gramlights 57 Maximums and require that little ring to fit the wheel on the hub properly. That being said..here is my problem:
When im just driving around if i let go of the wheel the car pulls to the left. Ok, i figured the guy who aligned the car didnt know what he was doing...no biggie... The car definatley doesnt handle the way it should (it has stock suspension). And I also noticed that when "getting on it" under Full Throtle, the car then begins to pull to the right!! This doesnt really make sense to me. The only thing i can think of is the pulling to the left is some alignment issue, some measurment off or something slightly bent that someone who doesnt know what to look for could easily miss. As far as the pulling to the right....Could the new powersteering pump have anything to do with that?! Also, Im hoping they got the wheels installed right...I assume messing up with those could be a big issue. In any event, Im taking my car into WestEnd Alignment in Gardena, CA to have him check it out. He comes highly recomended..and hes gonna look over my entire car and let me know whats messed up. Until then, If anyone could shed some light on this for me it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance.
