Well let's make this short.... bought car had it aligned and it was way out. Got that fixed then later bought wheels and eibach pro kit. Got installed and aligned. All was good till today. Steering wheel points to 2:30 and pulls hard right. Straighten wheel and it goes hard left. Didn't hit anything or do anything stupid. I'm stumped. Taking it back to brothers shop to see if anything was left lose. No noises coming from suspension anywhere so I'm perplexed. Has anyone had this problem before? TIA!!

Sounds like something might be loose.

When you say "all was good until today"...does that mean the Eibach kit and wheels were installed and worked great for a few weeks then suddenly the alignment was mysteriously off? Or, are you saying the Eibach kit and wheels were installed and it hasn't tracked straight since you put them on?

After reading the replies. The kit was installed for two days ago. It may have settled. I lifted the car and checked this morning, I didn't find anything lose. The steering has not got any worse. Like I said it's funny that I drove it and then came back and it was off. It's going back on the rack tomorrow for a free alignment. I'm going to check it out.

I'm very interested as the 13 RSpec 2.0T I just bought has Teins (I think) and the camber is off. The rear tires are wearing badly on the inside. I'm wondering if a regular alignment can fix this or if I need something(s).

A 4 wheel alignment will take care of that. The only thing not adjustable is caster in the front. I will load up my sheets of how bad this alignments were out. Also, I load up tomorrows sheet as well.

Thanks bentsprocket (I'm guessing there is a good story behind your "handle"). I'll get it aligned. I just didn't know if there was enough adjustment available.
