Wheel pulls bad one way then snaps back
« on: August 09, 2020, 02:18:36 AM »
I have a 2010 Sho and right after putting my downpipes on the other days and driving around I started to notice my wheel was turning left when I was on the accelerator and then would snap back straight when I left off, and itís gotten pretty bad and I just would like to get some ideas before I take it in and have someone look at it.

That sounds like torque steer.. not sure why you would be getting that after downpipes... did you remove anything other than the original pipes to make more room?

Downpipes = more torque

More torque = more torque steer.

Check your tire pressure also to be sure.

Nope found the problem a bolt was came loose over time connecting to the control arm, jacked the car up on that wheel and shook the wheel up and down nothing but side to side there was a lot of play Iím guessing the vibrations from the downpipes and new mounts.

Got it fixed for free, got to breaks plus where they had replaced the shock with an oem one I bought and the same guy came around the corner recognized what bolt that was then gave my keys to some kid who then got in my car and attempted to do a burn out in thinking it was fwd Taurus when itís not and got a free alignment off that, just very pissed that kid tried to do that also thinking about leaving a bad review.

I would absolutely leave a negative review. I would not put up with a shop abusing my car. I look at this way, I would want to know if the shop I am looking has a reputation for not being professional..

Sorry to hear about it :-/ although I bet his face was priceless when it just up and moved!

I would have walked over to the young man and told him to follow me.  I would have taken him to the manager and we would had a talk.  Kids will be kids, however there is a learning lesson that can be taught if the young man is receptive.  After the he left the office, I would have my talk with the manager.  Depending on the outcome, I would decide if it was worth leaving a bad comment.

Yes I wrote a review on yelp and got contacted by the head office for Omaha Nebraskaís locations for break plus, asked for the guys name who did it asked for the managers name and said they would be in touch with me soon, just really made me mad cuz the bolt was loose to the point of where he could of crashed it not knowing that the wheel would of been pulled from his hand. If launched any harder then he did, Iím just lucky I have a lower quality tire on right now that does not grip as hard or he would of went flying, instead he spun then backed off

Glad you found that loose bolt, crazy.  How do you like the down pipes?  I am getting ready to install mine in a few weeks.
