so in order for me to straigh i have to have my wheel cocked to the right, its to the point where the acura symbol points to the 20mph mark If i remember correctly it did do this after I got a alignment. Heres the specs that after the aligntment

Date 12-22-06

Front Left Right
Camber -1.0 -1.1
Caster 2.9 2.6
Toe -0.01 0.00

Rear Left Right
Camber -1.0 -1.1
Toe 0.07 0.07


based on the front I would think the less caster (being on the right) would make the car pull to the right, but it pulls to the left. Now I dont know the relationship between the front alignment and the rear so maybe the rear has something to do with this. Any help?

does the wheel turn to the left if you let go? or does it just go to the left when the wheel is straight?

it's kinda hard to phrase what i'm trying to ask... does the steering wheel naturally stay to the right now? like if you were cruising at say 35mph would the steering wheel start to turn, or would it stay slightly to the right and the car go straight? or does the wheel naturally go to the straight position? may not be in your suspension, but i don't see why they would have messed with the column/steering wheel if you were just getting an alignment.

when i'm curising in a straigh line the steering wheel is cocked to the right.

basically in order for me to go straigth i have to have it cocked.... Now if i put the steering wheel at 12oclock while crusing the car will start to wander to the left

so if you were cruising in a straight line with the wheel cocked to the right, and you let go of the wheel and just let it do it's own thing, would the wheel stay cocked to the right and the car go straight? or if you let go of the wheel when it's cocked right would the wheel return to 12 o'clock by itself?

your numbers don't show a pull, if anything a wander to the right, sounds to me like you just have a crooked steering wheel where as they didn't level and lock the steering wheel when they adjusted the toe, IF you are having a pull, rotate the tires on the front from side to side, if it pulls in the opposite direction then before, well then you have a "radial pull".
