Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car has new front end repair new tires new steering box.  Has been aligned three
times times. The last time I took it to Jacks wheel alignment on Thomas rd. in
Phoenix

together handed me my keys said no charge I cant fix it.  So it sits in my drive way.
Is there anyone on this planet that can fix this problem so I can at least sell it with a
clear conscience.   Thanks Bob Phx.

Has anyone checked the front brakes? A dragging caliper can cause this. Shocks and the front sway bar should be looked at as well. If all else fails, take it to your local Mercury dealer for diagnosis. Since it's an older model, ask for an older mechanic to look at it. For something like this you don't want the 20 year old oil change guy looking at it! HTH. -Jim

i really suspect those front brake calipers, also.

I appreciate the response, could the power steering unit affect this? I'm not sure if I mentioned that I had the best front end shop guy only dies allignment and suspension work, 35 years doing that. He checked out everthing he could think of. He even pulled off the tie rods to see if king pins ? were sticking. Well I guess I will have someone that should know about the calipers Also shocks, which are probably not involved but maybe the sway bar or the drag link. Thanks again, Bob In SUNNY Phoenix.
