So I said screw it and ordered 2 new axles, figured they might be the originals with 120k on em? Also, I got an alignment done because the car started pulling to the left. It was out of alignment and the wheel now points straight when driving straight, hasn't pointed straight ever since I bought it. But, the car still wants to pull left as soon as I let go of the wheel. I've been told its the tires being worn funny. After replacing the driver side strut I noticed the strut bearing was cracked and really gritty feeling, was wondering if this is causing any binding? More than likely right? The spring also shifts and bangs around when doing sharp turns say in a parking lot. The car is equipped KYB struts, aftermarket camber adjustment tops, and FS Werks lowering springs, and what apear to be KYB strut bearings. Could the bearing be binding up causing the spring to twist and put a rotational force making it pull left? I noticed if I made a right hand turn and then straightened out it would drive straight again, but haven't testing this out enough to really know for sure. This dang SVT has been quite the can of worms.
