I have a '92 Ford Tempo which seems to be having steering problems. I have recently replaced the wheel bearings & tie rod end on the right side of the vehicle. I have not yet had the wheels aligned. While making a right hand turn the car seems to want to keep turning while I straighten back out. While counter acting this pull with the steering wheel the car will suddenly jerk back straight. Also, from time to time while driving straight I can also feel the car want to wonder, again jerking back straight after a bit but this is most pronounced while turning right. No problem turning left that I have noticed. With the car jacked up I can move both wheels a bit from side to side, however this seems to be a bit of normal slop on an old vehicle, and the amount of slop is realitivly little compared to how much it pulls. My Question is, would the tires being out of alignment cause something such as this or should I start looking elsewhere before getting the alingment? What else could cause something such as this?
Thanks in advance,
