Hello Chris, I've looked through all of the steering questions but still can't quite find an issue like mine. I've lowered the front end to get some rake, had it aligned and Mayo's performance did the following:"found that both tie rod boots were split and driver's side tie rod was loose. Replaced both tie rod ends, corrected bent bracket for clevis. Checked camber, readjusted toe. Straighten steering wheel alignment. Checked rear alignment"It does seem to drive much straighter 90% of the time. However, my issue is that if I find a groove in the road or get to close to the edge, the front end will track (left or right) into that groove and it feels like it has a mind of it's own. Going straight down a flat road there seems to be no play at all in the steering wheel. Could the steering rack be getting worn? If so, wouldn't I have play in the wheel all the time? Thanks again Chris.
