Your desctiption sounds like your settings are incorrect. I reccomend that an alignment shop adjust for you.

A common mistake on this type of project is steering box centerning. to test, from straight ahead, stop.., turn wheel from dead center to the stop, and measure exactly how many turns. From dead center, it must be the same both ways.

Steering boxes have an exact center setting, and get looser (so to speak) as turned right or left off of that spot. SOOO, if set to one side or the other, steering gets tighter when turning in one direction as compared to the other.

Get an alignment shop to set this up, it is common problem.

Why does my 2009 gmc Acadia sway at highway speed


Make sure the tire pressures are at the recommended pressure. Check for worn steering/suspension components particularly the front/rear stabilizer links as one or more may be broken.Has the alignment ever been checked rot proper angles?

How to adjust toe


Have your alignment done by a professional, don't try to do it. The alignment angles need to be as close to manufacturers specs as possible. For every 1/4 degree an angle is out, it's like dragging your tires down the road for at least 25 feet side ways. You'll be replacing front tires every few weeks or months according to how much it is out of spec.

Need to know how to change the steering gear box on a 2001 neon


There are adjusting screws on boxes that will take out excessive play in the steering. However if it still follows the road contours dips etc I suspect that the alignment has not been done to specs as incorrect t castor and camber will affect the handling. Also the problem may not be in the front but in worn suspension bushes and rear alignment
