Steering Wheel Center

I know how to re-center my steering.

But, what would cause it to slowly go off center again?

New BDS 4.5 LA kit....

You mentioned springs settling.... could this be it?

It's been OK for 2 months....but recently it has gone off center to the passenger side enough to set off the ESP.

I looked.... nothing seemed loose.... but ball joints are hard to check.
Guess it's back to the shop....

BJs are easy to check. Jack it up high enough to get pry bar under the tire you want to check pry tire up look for play.

If your steering wheel is going off center could be springs settling. Some guy get this for a few months or their first few times wheeling after a lift install.

Check and make sure your track bar is torqued and there is no movement.

So your ends were bad enough to off center the wheel but no death wobble?
