Sounds like alignment problems. If it's lowered at all it WILL throw off the camber AND toe. If you hit anything in the road you can easily trow off the alignment. Suspension could be damaged if you have gone off of the road or hit a pot hole. Suspensions are kinda weird if they are not within specification or at least close. Especially if one side is doing something different than the other. Get an alignment done or see if they can at least "check it" and if there's something damaged the guy looking at it could MAYBE give you some ideas too. It's cheaper than paying a real mechanic a lot of loot if there's nothing wrong, because they will always charge for looking. Give us more info, like if you lowered it recently or changed the suspension at all.

lowered for many years...nothing done new
changed rims.. and realized my steering was fucked..
changed EVERYthing in front suspetion.. exept lower control arm (just changed bushings
now it will not self center from right side, the last 1/4 turn on steering wheel and maybe alittle also form left..
and steering feels very LIGHT/loose could maybe fixed by lucknut bolt on rack or new rack.. but dont explain selfcenter problems..

which ever side you hit with, see how far back the wheel is sitting in the wheelwell.

Typical weak point on a Honda.......

ok did the aligment !.. (see file)
everything is within spec.. exept camber.. but that is not the problem..
now i can really feel the problem...
when i hit the gas it turns it self 2 the right.. steering wheels starts turning it self.. then i let go.. and it trys to center...
WHAT is up with that !?.,,
cause when im crusing it willl make the wheel stay if i turn alitlle to the right ontil i let go og gas.. it would like 2 return .. but still not as good as from left side

The accident could have caused you some fram damage. Check to verify all tracks are same length as oem. If the fronts are smaller now it could cause a stagger setup and the car will turn to one side and not center........


Just something to check....

stagger is usually setup for oval track racing ( car will naturally turn in one direction) because of the tire setup. example you want to stagger to the left. you use larger diameter tires on right side, thus it will cause the car to drift to the left...Your problem sounds to be the same as what i discribed. Make sure all tires and rims are same diameter etc, but that could also be caused by many other things...for example the steering wheel not returning to center without some "assistance" happen on my neon because the power steering pump was going out and there was insufficent line pressure to "self center"


Hope it helps

lack of waves indicates lower than normal return line pressure (probably becuase PS pump is worn out) if the high pressure side is lower than normal then the return line side must also be proportionally lower....

It seems you will have to pull the pump and inspect it....

:cussing:

but what are you going to do.........thats life


shit breaks...
