Default Issues with Coilovers

This is a problem, I've been facing since I installed a set of coilovers on my car, I have hardly driven the car on an open road. Its been going from one garage to the other for fixes and mods.

The problem is that my steering does not center, to go dead straight my steering has to be a couple degrees to the left.

I've read up online, this could be an issue with the installation of the coilovers or somethings funny with my steering. I had a lot of stuff fixed by Honda s.s. which included some steering rack/column components.

Any idea on what could have gone wrong, would be greatly appreciated.

This is for your CRV if I'm not mistaken. Aman bro just get the alignment done and be sure to tell them the steering is off centre. It probably got messed while the coilovers were being installed, and is not because of the coilovers per se.

Yup it is. I know its not because of the coilovers. I got the alignment done at the company but I guess they might have missed out the part with the steering being off.

Where did you get your suspension done?

Gave it to Viper performance, but still had to get alignment done after fitting. Finally got the steering back to centre from Honda itself. I think you should mention it to them otherwise they don't really check the car properly.
