    1st problem: Okay something is definitely wrong with my steering wheel or the tires itself. When im driving down the road in a straight line, i have to keep the steering wheel a little bit turned to the right... not a whole lot... its weird, this happened right after i got my lift done... well it happened after i made a full turn to the right... idk
    2nd problem: when i was driving home today there was a puddle on the right, when i hit the puddle, my right wheel? or both wheels? suddenly jerked to the right, and i had to suddenly turn the steering wheel to the left or i would run up onto the sidewalk... man i seriously thought i was gonna crash :eek:

    1st problem: did you get an alignment after the lift.

    2nd: must have been one hell of a pothole :eek:

    no i didnt... damn i thought the offroad place would already do that? or do you mean that did i get it aligned by another shop after they put the tires on?

    hmm maybe ur right, gotta check on that one piece of road... if it wasnt.. what would u think it would be?

    ok with my experience, everytime i call and ask the price iv never been quoted with an alignment. i know some shops that go elsewhere and some that do it there.

    what did you pay and what kinda lift did they install? it sounds to me though like alignment
