Suspension Problem
 
I had a blown shock on the left rear about a month ago, which I replaced myself. Just yesterday I noticed that when i let go of the steering wheel, it shakes back and forth slightly and pulls to the left. To my recollection it never did this before, but I dont think it was a result of a simple shock install. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

I would check your ball joints first, then get a front end alignment! :thumbsup:

Before you spend money on an alignment shop.....
Things to check: - tire pressures, tires for damage - flat spot, out of round
- when you were changing the shock, is it possible that you
unseated or turned the spring?
- is everything tight ?
- if you physically shake the car, does anything go
"clunk" ??
