Recently I've noticed that when I let go of the steering wheel, while driving at just about any speed, the car will drift to the left. The car has about 3000 miles on it since I had the front end aligned.
I checked the tire pressure, all within 1/2 PSI. I tried switching the front tires. No change. No appreciable wear (yet) on the tires.
Tried braking hard but did not notice any pulling.
The wheel bearings are new and adjusted properly.
Does anyone have suggestions of what to check next.
I was thinking of bringing the car back to re-check the alingment.
Thanks,
Old Ron

Ron: It may be just a brake dragging. If you have stock drums check your adjustment or after a short drive get out and feel the temperature of each wheel.
Good luck.

Ron....Do you have a good relationship with a good experienced alignment man? I've been going to the same guy for the last 25 years now....After the alignment, we drive the car together....Ocasionally, he has to take it back into the shop to retweak it a little.
