Hi what it is
My car had a bump an my car is pulling to the left .

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
When I had the bump I went into the side of him on my right hand side and he push me in to a curb on the left side an it bean pulling to the left ever since

Dear customer, I would need a little more information. I would like to know what part of the vehicle was affected in the crash, if the front end was involved, if the tires were replaced and balanced,, if you have pictures of how the vehicle looked or do you have any report or can you give me a little more information would be more helpful because any damage in the front train, in the chassis on the wheels and in the other components of the vehicle so small the damage makes the vehicle to pull to the one.
It may be simply the steering of the misaligned vehicle

This is the report of the damage that was repaired

Dear customer, according to the report everything was corrected, the train, the chassis, the tires, the wheels etc, everything I see right, the only thing I do not see that was checked under the report is the steering wheel system, I just think there is the problem, is the steering wheel straight and aligned when the vehicle pulls to one side?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Yes when the steering wheel is straight it pulls to the left put when I pull it to the right just a little bit it’s fine it’s just when you let go of the steering wheel
The steering wheel is straight but starts to drift over to the left
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
All the tyre pressures r the same to

Yes dear customer, for me, the problem lies in the steering system, may be the arm of the steering or the steering box. There is where you should verify.

In anyway check again the front axle, maybe one of the rubbers is playing and therefore is pulling to one side, but it is very likely that the problem is in the steering system.

Have you understood me dear customer?
