    Alignment Problem

    Ok i was at a friends graduation party earlier today, when i went to turn around in someone elses driveway to park in the opposite direction when something funny happened with my steering, for some reason or another i didn't think anything of it until i left. When i had to steer my steering wheel 1/8 of a turn to the right or a little more in order for it to go straight. I'm taking it to a shop in the morning but wanted to see if anyone would know what the problem might be or if they've had this type of problem before too.

    Really bad roads (very bad runoff angle) can cause it to behave like you're talking about. Otherwise, if you're on a completely flat road and it still does it, it probably is an alignment problem

    A lot of roads have 2 dips in them from being driven on. With our wide tires, the car will always be pulling to one side or the other on these roads, sometimes hard. Test it out, drive closer to the right or the left and see the difference in pull. If you're sure the road is completely flat, then you have an alignment issue of some sort, or maybe your rear end is way off center? Not sure if it would cause that issue but I think it could.
