    Default Santro steering tight, won't return to center

    I just had replaced my Santro Club's front right hub barring and the ball joints on both sides. Took the car home and while driving I noticed that the steering wheel is tight and just stays where I leave it and it does not return back to center automatically. I had to take it back to center manually to align straight on the road.

    Is it related to the parts I just got replaced e.g the ball joints? Or it could be something else...



    Thank you

    Sorry. I didn't mention. I took it to wheel alignment first when he told to get the ball joints replaced. After getting the ball joints replaced, I also got the wheel alignment done..

    The suspension parts have been tightened too much and at wrong angles. The ball joint if repaired act like this as it is basically a jugaarr.

    The suspension needs to be tightened with the wheels at resting position.
