I am always steering to the left when driving on most roads
Question: I own a chev uplander I am always steering to the left when driving on most roads except where the road are flat (no crown ) I Do not remember it being this way when it was new . Any Ideas Answer: Sounds very much like somehow the front end alignment got knocked out of adjustment. Either because of a loose steering component or maybe a curb got bumped during a parking maneuver or a pot hole in the road caught it wrong. Your best bet would be to have the front steering components checked for looseness and have the front end alignment checked and reset as needed. When they pull like that it is normally because of those reasons and those same reasons can end up causing excessive tire wear also . There an be one other cause and that is if a belt in the tire is separating. Rotate the front tires to the back and see if it goes away, if it does i recommend replacing the tires.
