had 4 wheel aligment twice i past week, and steering wheel is still off center..Help

  • I have had the ZJ aligned twice by two different shops
  • New control arm bushings - upper and lower
  • new front half axle installed
  • tires rotated

This fixed most of the handling/steering issues I had except for one.
Steering wheel is slightly off center to the left when going straight, the jeep also has a perceptible pull to the right (steering wheel pulls towards center position)

What needs to be done next?
Why wouldn't this have showed up in the computerized alignment? (alignment print out doesn't show anything odd)_

They just didn't take the time to straighten it out for ya. It's an easy fix. All you have to is turn the arm running from the gearbox down to the right wheel a bit and it will straighten right out.
