GT 2.0JTS - Wheel Alignment/Tracking
I've now had my GT 2.0 JTS for around 3 months now. Love the car and don't really have any complaints.
However, over the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that the steering wheel is slightly off center (turned a few degrees to the right) when keeping the wheels straight. In addition, i find the steering 'pulling' to the right when i accelerate from stop (like at lights) and when i brake to come to a halt. Sometimes, when going round a left hand bend, i find i have to really hold the steering wheel solid to stop it jumping to the left...
My local Alfa dealership wants £100 to balance the wheels. Is this worth doing or should i just take it to a local independent and pay a fraction of the cost?
I'm guessing this is only the tracking that is off. Does anyone think something more sinister is underfoot?
