car pulls wierd

Ok so after i installed my clutch my car has been pullin to the right. i went to get it aligned right after i did my clutch and they aligned it and it still pulls. i went bac and told them so they checked tha alignment and said it was good but that my passenger wheel bearing was bad. Tha problem is that its not grinding and it was fine b4 my clutch job(as far as i kno) and i tried wiggiling the tire like ur supposed to to see if tha bearing is bad but no wiggle. sooooo not sure what to do. ne suggestions or ideas?

Re: car pulls wierd

we need from you

does it pull while your accelerating, cruising, or braking? that makes ALL the difference.




but since it started happening after you did the clutch, you had to pull the axles out, so how did you get them out? undoing the lower balljoint? upper BJ? UCA?
that's where i'd start looking, personally.

Re: car pulls wierd

Ok it pulls when accelerating and cruising. to get the axles out i separated the lower ball joints. but for the passenger side i had to replace the lower ball joint so i had to take the knuckle out so i could get the new ball joint pressed in which means i separated the upper ball joint on passenger side only. and i checked and made sure everything looks good and everything is in right and sitting right so hope that helps.

Re: car pulls wierd

Are you sure your axle nut is tight? Last time I saw someone with this problem, it appeared their wheel bearing was bad, but really their axle nut was loose

Re: car pulls wierd

If you have pulled your suspension apart you probally need to get your alignment done.

Checked tha axle nut and its TIGHT. i would think if it was loose that you would feel it also when i try to wiggle the tire but i dont feel ne movement.

as stated in my 1st post i hav taken it and then took it bac but they still say its good. neway kinda feel stupid right now cause the radius rod end where the bushings are was not tight which allowed for the tire to move bac and that caused most of the pulling. so i used an air gun and ran it down tight but its still pullin to the right a little bit. and after that the alignment guys still didnt know y. so still looking for suggestions.

tha only other thing they said was to take tha car to a body shop and hook it up to a body aligner and make sure everything there is right....i know tha car was in a small collision on that front side so mayb thas a good idea?....... ne1 know how much that would cost?
