*moved to correct Accord section.

My steering is also a little crooked, doesn't drive completely straight (gonna get that checked sometime soon).

Maybe the tie rods were affected by the installation, or it messed up the alignment, dunno. You're using the same exact tires, right?

in for someone more knowledgeable..*cough* Chris.

oh your steering wheel just moved off center towards the passenger side.... If you let off the wheel does it pull in either direction by itself?

If its just the steering wheel being offcenter it shouldnt be too hard to fix

In the mean time, ill look up procedure to correct that.. Its nothing serious though to worry about, unless your car is pulling by itself when you let off the wheel

you need an alignment. any shop will tell you that, anytime working on the suspension of your car you will have to get an alignment, and if im correct you HAVE to pull off the balljoints and wishbone to get the axles off. meaning you messed with your alignment. i fortunately didnt have this problem, although my stepdad did when he changed the axles in his truck. his steering wheel was actually completely sideways. idk how this happened. but from what i understand he just took it in for an alignment and problem solved.

not really josh, see in the real world where loosening nuts and bolts is required to fix alignment, none of the required ones are actually loosened or removed during replacement of axles so alignments are not needed.. I replaced both my front axles and had perfect alignment (free lifetime alignment @ firestone so i figured id check it out)...


What he has is the steering wheel was moved while he had everything apart and when he bolted everything back up, it left the steering wheel in the wrong place.. He can fix this himself or have a shop adjust the wheel back.. No alignment needed unless like I stated before, his car pulls by itself with his hands off the wheel

ball joint doesnt affect alignment.. U should know.. All it is, is the castle nut on the lower ball joint and the whole hub assembly pulls up out of the bar

The alignment place usually wont adjust your steering wheel unless you tell them to fix it.. cause its not really part of the alignment completely

Only real question to ask now is, did it pull to the drivers side before you changed the axles? If it was the case, sometimes its not always the alignment, It can pull from irregular tire wear too, amongst several other things

what tire? lol.

but very true, also can pull if you unevenly lowered. creates more camber on certain wheels which can pull u over a little.
