Most cars need a 4 wheel alignment. Check the easy stuff first for the drift problem. Tire air pressures and feel the wheels for heat for a caliper dragging.

Thought 4 wheel drive and all wheel drive needed 4 wheel align...and front wheel drive only need 2 wheel alignment. Anybody know for sure?

Front wheel drive cars can need rear alignment too. They have shim packs to adjust the toe in. If you're not seeing any unusual rear tire wear, skip it.
