The car does not turn to the left near as sharp as when turning to the right. Also. At 65 MPH it does travel down the HWY straight as an arrow. Bob70. That makes sense right? I think you got it.
So in that case, the steering linkage was not adjusted with the steering box in the center of travel. That's the first thing you need to do. Put the box at the center of travel and align the front wheels straight ahead at that point. This first problem has nothing to do with the Steer Clear unit or the steering shaft. The primary problem is between the actual steering box and the spindles. Fix that first. Once you have the wheels pointed straight ahead when the box is centered, THEN you can see where the steering wheel is pointed and either move the wheel on the shaft splines or the u-joint on the Steer Clear unit splines (if you can).
