Hello fellow SRT Owners -- I have a "General" question for everyone and trying to get input on an Alignment / Steering Wheel Question.
Question = Considering you're going on a road that is "paved" and is straight without a lot of imperfections, etc. etc. -- After you have your steering wheel centered; about how long will it continue to go straight before it starts drifting to the right?
My reason for this is on my Jeep, it seems I'm constantly correcting it from going right , ( not a whole lot ) - but enough where it's noticeable. Slow "tugs" on the wheel to the left about every 1/4 to 1/2 mile, maybe less. 2-3 degrees, so not just a whole lot.
So when I let off the steering wheel on a nice highway, after about 2-3 seconds it starts pulling to the right. I would say in between slowly and moderate pulling to the right. Since I have only 1600 miles, its very difficult to remember if it cruised straight " HANDS OFF" , and how long it did this before it would start drifting to the right.
I have had one Alignment at the dealership ( took it in after I ran over a circular "hard rubber" construction barrier base that "looks like a man-hole cover"! Just glad it was rubber and not steel.
Ran over it only on the right side front/rear tires. They couldn't find anything bent, "yet" - so I was curious if our SRT's pull fairly quickly to the right or If I have a totally different issue with something possibly "slightly" bent from running over this hard rubber construction piece in the road. If so, what usually would go out of whack first from running "OVER" a 3" piece of hard a$$ plastic construction barrier base.
I know our vehicles suspension is tough and I hit it doing about 60 mph - The tires on the right look good, the wheels, the air in tires has stayed constant since as well for over a week + - Again, only have 1600 miles....
Just any input from you guys would be great and also what you think I should do next? Take it to another shop to double check the dealership's Alignment numbers? OR back to the dealer and continue the journey.. Maybe this is just NORMAL to pull right "moderately" after letting off the wheel from center for 2 seconds?
- Seems to me it should drive "straight" going forward for a lot longer than a few seconds tho'...
