Theairhead You could do the alignment yourself. There are many guides out there. But if you mess it up you could find a shop somewhere.

bigmaninds I had the exact same problem it ended up being "tie rod roll" check your bushings on your tie rods most likely worn out. I ended up goin to 1 ton rod ends. If you haven upgraded your steering you will continue to get this problem. Have someone turn the wheel while your underneath looking at what the tie rods are doing

Imped You don't need to take it to a shop to 'align' it. You can do it yourself. Educate yourself and get to it.

Theairhead Have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth while you or your mechanic look for any play in parts.
