You may have a tire problem, you did not say if they were rotated, another issue is caster, many times the factory fixed caster is not enough to correct pull, a good front end man can adjust this with a kit or other method, the problem is most front end tech's just set the car to what the spec is and roll it out the door, be insistent they test drive it and check the issue, tell them exactly when it pulls, highway, low speed city or whatever the case may be, my Dad had a problem like yours until I hooked him up with a out of the box thinking front end tech, he fixed the pull problem first try, it was a caster adjustment, my Dad was so happy, he had 3 align's done before that, 2 under warranty.

How do i align a steering wheel on a 2002 astro van


If the steering wheel hasn't been removed and is just off center then the front end may need alignment to correctly get the steering wheel at center.

I have a 98 ford explorer that pulls quickly to the right when i let go of the wheel is this simply an alignment?


it may be just an alignment problem, but could also be a stuck brake caliper on the passenger side front if it pulls to the right when you let go of the sterring wheel. do you smell brakes hot around that passenger front wheel after you've driven it for say 20 miles or so? if you do smell the brakes hot, then you probably have a bad brake caliper on that passenger front. if no smell, then you're on track with the alignment. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fix ya.com

Hello. I have a 1995 Camry sedan..I'd been experienced this problem,which is,my car will slide a bit to the leftside if I'm not holding my steering wheel...I had sent the car for alignment,but still the...


If you have had an alignment and it's still there, take it back, they should have fixed it in the alignment process, or at least told you that you have other issues to address first. and not align your car.
I have done alignments and if there are parts that are to loose you can't do the alignment. Some times there are issues in the rear on the car that has to be fixed, they should have caught that too.
The purpose of an alignment is to make the car go down the road straight and not pull to one side, also to level out the steering wheel.

Chevy astro 1998 wheel alignment problems


Can't believe they don't have the numbers. but, not being in the business anymore, I don't either. However if you want to do something yourself, likely you can get it close by the" is it wearing and where' method, till you get the specs. Most have an excentric on the steering knuckle strut mount. Mark current position with something that won't wash off then turn excentric to move the top of the tire away from the area that's wearing, and lock it down. this changes your camber setting. If wheel is off center, center it and lock in place. sight down tire and see if one is visibly turned more in or out than the other. adjust that one first to make it reasonably straight by loosening collar on tie rod end. Count number of turns you made to the collar so you can return to original position if needed (write it down) Then measure distance between center of both tires at the front and rear of each, in the same place. The total measurement should be around one-quarter inch less at the front. If not, adjust each tire one half of the difference. Monitor tread wear after you do this and make any fine adjustments needed. Most of these do not have a caster adjustment, so don't bother with that.
I'm certain though that you will find a shop with those specs if you look a bit harder, but you may need to go beyond where you normally travel.
If your car is not wearing tires radically, or pulling badly, I would leave it alone till you find a more informed shop.

My 1998 chevy cavalier needs a frontend alinement,


Yes it can be done at home,but I would highly reccomend having a shop do it.The price of a 4 wheel alignment is less than the price of a new tire which is going to be the best case scenario if you don't get it right,the worst case is such poor driveability that you'll risk your welfare,your passengers and that of other drivers.Are you sure the alignment is off?A bad wheel bearing will make it seem as the front alignment is off.
