I own a 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera. I love how the steering is

Customer Question
I own a 2007 Porsche...
I own a 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera. I love how the steering is tight and sporty. I also love how the car hugs the road at high speeds. It has 27,000 miles. Recently, it felt as it was pulling right, and I needed to turn the steering wheel just a bit left when traveling straight. I had the tires replaced, front wheel alignment, left inner tied rod end and boot were replaced, and new front brake pads and rotors. The alignment is good now. But, when I received the car back the steering was not as tight as before and the car seems to float a little when accelerating to high speeds. The original Tires were Continental. The replacement tires were the newer version of the original Continentals. How do I go about getting the steering adjusted to get that tight sporty feel. How do I get the car to hug the road better.

Hello

1 thing to check is the rear alignment as well as the front as this has a strong effect on how the car drives and its best to have all 4 wheels done at the same time

also check the tyre pressures are a couple of psi off from maximum - as if its just you in the car most of the time then you'll benefit from running a few psi off

its also well worth investing in an accurate tyre pressure gauge as too many are wildy out
