Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
Does the car only pull on acceleration? If you are driving down the road and coast and take your hands off the wheel does it drift?
Ok.. So it goes right now.. Has tire pressures been checked?
The car can pull to the left if you are under acceleration. That is called Torque Steer. You get that on all Front Wheel Drive vehicles. The way to check the alignment is to find a nice flat road and I normally put the car into neutral and center the wheel and see how long I can coast to determine if the alignment is off...
Now.. You do have what they call Road Crown. All roads are pitched for water run off. So you want to check this on multiple roads. If you find this is the same no mater where you are, then I would return back to where you had the alignment done and have them recheck the alignment for you.
Well, you want to of course to check lower control arm bushings to make sure there is no play. If the rear control arm bushes are torn that can certainly affect the alignment
No, that is the sway bar. That won't cause any type of alignment issue, but can cause a noise if the outer sway bar links are bad or the mounting bushings.
There is one on the right and one on the left. They mount to the body of the car and go out to the knuckle which holds the wheel.
you need to measure it's deflection. That is the amount of movement the control arm makes.
