2008 Compass Rallye pulls to right ONLY with passenger
I'm having an issue with my compass pulling to the right, but it only seems to pull or go right when I have a passenger. I had the passenger side ball joint replaced a few months ago and had it aligned at the dealership (mistake). After the aligned it the first time it pulled to the left. I took it back and they "corrected" it and it pulled to the right. So I took it to my local meineke (maybe bigger mistake? lol) and they "corrected" the alignment, however it still pulled to the right slightly less than before. I took it back to them and they corrected, claiming it was still slightly off. Everything seemed pretty good, however I notice driving with passengers it still pulls to the right (I usually am driving alone). Then when I drive by myself it drives normal.
Could this still be an alignment issue, or do you think something else? Shocks are pretty much new, replaced them last summer and it drove fine. Springs seemed okay at that time as well.
Also, I know I have a radial tire pull in at least 1 tire. When I bought the compass used it had new tires on it and when I went to rotate I discovered the pull. I have tried swapping tires around on the vehicle to change the direction of the pull, but really it only pulls right when I have passengers.
Any ideas? If it is an alignment, I'll just get it aligned again somewhere else when I get new tires. I'm just afraid it could be something worse or the stealership didn't install the ball joint right.
Did the mechanics who did the alignments provide you with a printout of the specs before and after the alignment? Sears does this and they've always corrected my pulls well. Recently my 2011 Patriot was pulling, ended up being a front Toe issue. The factory tolerance was like 00 to +.2 ,and mine was -.2
Radial pull will also do it. Had that in my Volvo. New tires fixed it.
They did provide the sheet and it seemed legit after meineke aligned. I plan on getting another alignment when I get new tires (still have decent tread on current tires). Maybe hanging brake or e-brake?
