driving
when im driving normal it doesnt happen, but when i am driving fast..n shift to another gear, my steering wheel will pull to either side, which means id have to hold the steering wheel extra tight, or else i would lose control of my car when im driving. is this because my alignment is messed up?...

I get that when I quickshift in the lower gears, mainly when I'm turning during the shift (getting onto the highway or whatever).

Anyway, just common sense when it's turning that it will turn more when you deliver the sudden burst of power.

The same thing happens (but to a less extent) going straight and quick shifting from 1-2, but it's usually unnoticable.

I don't have the problem when I'm already going 60+

Yah, I have been having the same problem recently. It kinda just flops to the right or left a little too much. Oversteer galore! thumbsdown
