      pulls left

      noticed my 2010 pulling fairly hard to the left. gave it a visual today and did not see anything broke or missing. does not look like there are any adjustments other than the rack end going into the spindle. rough measurements in the back yard was 64 across the front and 64 1/4 across the back of the front tires with a straight edge across each tire. 87 thou. and i bought it new. never any problems before. i thought i remember reading about the adjustments on these cars that said there are no adjustments. any help would be great.

      In the front it could be bent struts, ball joints, tie rods, lower a arm bushings, sway link ends...

      Maybe your car needs an alignment.

      ok this is what i'll do this fall.e-bay add 151562702569 is a Detroit Axle add that sells everything that goes on the front suspension for 66.31 delivered to my door with free shipping. everything pressed on and ready to be installed. i doubt that they would even put my car on the alignment rack for 66.31.i will now focus on bolt removal. been a shade tree mechanic for about 55 years so here goes. thanks everybody for your response.

      car was pulling left so i switched front tires (pass to dr,dr to pass) and now the car pulls to the right. i'll put two new tires on and have them check the rim.

      Radial tires can have what I call ply steer. Something happens to the belts in the tires and one tire rolls with more resistance. You switched the tires and now the car pulls to the right. Yes, ply steer is the problem. I diagnosed my first case of ply steer in 1964 at a tire and alignment store I worked at.

      Only different tires will fix the problem OR if the rear tires are OK put those on the front of the car.

      Rotating tires doesn't cost anything if you do the work.

      thank you for your reply. the problem was the rim was bent. i did not know that at the time. got a new rim and tires and everything is good again.
