Steering wheel dosent return to center turning left

Have a 2013 jkur. I have a tereflex 2.5 installed with cooper stt 35s.

At first I thought I may have radial pull to left with tires but the more I drive it the more I notice the tendency to just go left even at low speed.

I also noticed it doesn't spring back to center as much when I take a right turn compared to a left turn.

I got an alignment but can't find the printout. Everything was green. I have about 5degrees caster with drop brackets.

My steering wheel is just slightly off to the left. I'm assuming that would make no difference. I just need to adjust it straight. Just need to get out and do it.

I read this could be a toe issue. Seems odd the alignment came out green. I will have to get it done again.

Thanks for help
Dan.

Can I drive it without steering stabilizer to see if anything changes. Not far but just enough to see if it makes a difference. Not sure if that is safe or not.

Thanks
Dan

Also does steering wheel come into play at all with a pull in one direction? Since it's not off by much I never bothered. Assumed it had no relevance to pull.

Yeah you can pull the SS and drive it. Are you running the stock one or TF one? Also check it for

I would return to the shop that performed the alignment and give them a shot at repairing the issue first. Sounds like a component came loose. They can re-center the steering wheel as well.
