lol well i would say that 30-60 bucks for a fraction of an inch difference between the steering wheel adn the front wheels may not be first on my list unless its something that is going to cause me problems in the future

yea that sux. dont wait as long as i did. it got so bad on mine that i needed all new tires (back tires were bad due to passenger requested burnouts and youthful stupidity). i just went ahead and bought rims too. but yea it needs to be fixed

if you want to reset your steering wheel its not that hard... straighten your wheels... take the steering column apart in the engine bay... might have to drop the dash and pull the wheel away from the firewall.. ... straighten the steering wheel... put everything back together... will take ya 6 hours in your driveway

if u wait too long to get it done then ur tires will start wearing to the way it is now and then when u get it aligned the high spot on the tires will cut off first thing

i agreed with green just take your car to a good shop a have a total wheel alingment. and presto you will have your car done right they will set all the angles that are off and also will set the steering wheel.must of the alingment shops will give you warranty of 6 months at least some will also ofer more. remember every time you do anything to your suspension you need to have your alig.redone.also manufacture recomends you check alig. at least every 6 months. good luck
