steering wheel forcing to one direction
Whenever I go over crowns on the road, my steering wheel forces to one direction. Is this normal?

I had an alignment done few months ago, but the camber came out to be a little off.

I have 19" with some racing tires I think, they came factory installed.

what kind of car is this? nething done on suspention?

2011 accord with the HFP package. It's factory lowered by 1".

what direction?

Could be just your car tracking onto the crown given the HFP 19in wheels are 8in wide? I went from 6in to 7in wide and I would feel the car tracking onto the crown often.

Could be your tires and wheels, as in the make/model/rubber compound used and the wheel size itself. Most importantly, check your tire pressure first before you start throwing money at it.

Checked tire pressure, got an alignment done, and it's still doing that. Guess I'll have to live with it of what Lemont says it's true. My friend told me to check the steering fork or something, cause I went over a speed bump quite fast once, those big wide short ones.

If anyone frequently goes to the Tim Hortons on Bridgeport by the hotel, there is a speed bump as you turn in. It's not noticeable at night. They should paint that thing. Anyways, yeah, I went over that at 35ish km.

im guessing its just the effect of being lowered on hfp. if u have a friend that has the same but stock car u can probably make a comparison there.
