Q: Ha an alignment.. 04 pt cruiser still pulls to the right hard

asked by on August 26, 2017

Had new tires put on then an alignment.. 04 pt cruiser still pulls to the right..HARD. Sometimes i have to pull it back to left or middle to stare.. Not sure what issue is. Gearbox or rack.. There are no leaks. Was fine till i changed tires and had alignment. Took back and they did alignment over..SAME PROBLEM?????

My car has 201843 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the alignment has not enough positive caster it will not return to center as it should or if you have a binding rack and pinion or tie rod ends it will also cause the same problem. If alignment is set correctly then you have a problem with rack and pinion or tie rods are binding.
