I'm not an expert, so don't take my response as such. In past posts and articles elsewhere, that symptom seem like that of a toe problem. I was just reading in the lastet issue of Hot Rod where a guy put a straight axle on a 55 Olds. He had wandering problems even though the alignment was spot on. Someone suggested adding more toe, that solved his problem. In addition, again from reading elsewhere, where the wheel doesn't return, is due to improper toe. One last thing, these alignment specs were when cars used bias ply tires and not radials. Talking with a friend of mine who does road racing, said radials need more caster then bias.
