Customer Question

New tires and alignment is perfect. Vehicle has to be driven, can't take your eyes off the road. Just small adjustments both left and right with the steering wheel to keep it on track. HELP

HI,

Ok, first, what is the year, make and model of your vehicle, and if applicable, is it 4wd?

Second, does the steering seem loose at all, and does it wander to either side?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

2011 Ford Expedition 2WD 38K miles. Steering is tight. It wanders both ways.

Hi,

Sorry, but we are not online 24/7 and it took you 1 day to respond.

I will opt out as I have obligations to take care and you seem now to be in a hurry. Please do not respond until another expert replies back, otherwise it will lock it to me and I will be indisposed today
Expert:  ASE Master Tech 35yrs replied 3 years ago.

Glad to be of help. The problem is not enough positive caster. Take it back to where you had alignment done and have them increase your caster to maximum specs. You may have to buy caster/camber kit.

You can get the kits here.
