have wheels rebalanced. if they shake when driving at speeds, then its more than likely the front wheels. HOWEVER, if u can, get a mech to inspect everything from arms to steering rack for anything bent or out of the norm.

the cheapest and first possibly fix is to have the front wheels rebalanced. weights fall off all the time, especially if the wheels are old, and recently had tires replaced. the wheel drum is dirty and not always cleaned to its best for the wheel weight to stick on. also, while its on the balancer, u can see if the wheel was bent or not

if still the issue, have the wheel/tire road forced balanced. this will see if there are any issues with the tire itself, maybe manufactuer defect.

so balanced should help. What I'm worried is the car goes right if my steering wheel straight, this would correct it as well?

all cars pull to the right, its the crown of the road.

however, if its crazy pull, then its most likely alignment.

also have the tires checked for any weird wear. a dysfunc tire can cause the pulling and thus the pull u feel in the steering wheel.

each time you touch ur suspension, god kills another kitten j/k

each time you touch ur suspension, ur geometry changes and thus changes your alignment settings

Dale's alignment in langley.

You wheels shuddering and steering wheel not aligning are 2 different issues.

If you are raising your car using your built in suspension settings, you don't need an alignment. However to correct your steering wheel you need to take it to an alignment shop. You mind as well take it to Dales and get it done at the same time.

Use search for contact info for Dale's

PS This is in the wrong section.
