    Back from the shop, I got a print out of wheel alignment settings,

    There is nothing really too wrong that I can see from the print out.

    I had ps arms put in, Would my car pull if one of those are bent or something?

    I also had a lock spacer put in. I thought maybe the rack may not have been centred either. Could this also make my car pull to the right?

    Thank-you ! ! !

    you have a locked diff and its off center?
    they aligned you car by centering the steering wheel and going from there?
    dont get a wheel alignment from there again? especially seeing as they didnt actually give you a wheel alignment, test drove it to see if whatever they did actually did anything, decided it didnt but charged you anyway.

    centered rack would mean you have more lock one way from center than the other, just poor alignment.

    Go back and tell them to take it for a drive.

    Obviously they didn't test drive it. Or just slack cunts.

    check tyre pressures first of all.

    maybe write up the spec from the print out?

    if the camber is out on the front it will make the car pull, if the castor is out it will make the car pull. not just the toe adjustment....

    take it back tell them its not right, ask them if they centered the rack. im sure they will redo it for you.

    yeah check tire pressure first, then maybe check your brake calipers to make sure one isn't sticking.
    Oh and you do have the same size wheels all round don't you?

    The caster is a little different either side, this is what causes pull to one side. It's not out by much, but maybe they could have tried harder to get it even.

    Your camber maynot be adjustable, but if it was, they could have tried harder to get it the same on either side.

    In my mind, the toe should be zero on all wheels. As a starting point at least.


    Also:
    -if you have coilovers they need to be adjusted all the same height.
    -the workshop should jack up each wheel when putting the W/A device on the wheel, and adjust for run-out.
    -you need the same size and brand tyres left and right.

    Plus, the workshop need to testdrive the car and have it driving straight before you get it back.
