Well, it sould be a loose/worn steering box, or maybe insufficient
toe-in. I have my steering with ever so slight toe-in (still within spec, of
and it does not self-center much and is more responsive to steering input.
I also used nylatron bushings to get rid of play in the suspension
to take advantage of the toe-in change.
Come to think of it your problem could be worn out suspension bushings too.....
