How to Center my Steering Wheel
One of the most common questions we get is:
How do I center my steering wheel?
Does the QuickTrick center my steering wheel?
I have my alignment straight, but my steering wheel is off center. How do I fix this?
Rack and Pinion Steering only
On each of the tie rods (rods coming out of the steering)
there is a nut on each one on each side, right and left
You have to loosen those nuts on each side
Turn either the right side clockwise or the left side counter clockwise (or reverse that)
If you turn the right side a half turn, you will then have to turn the left side a half turn.
You will have to play with them until you have the steering wheel centered, but that is the process.
Mr QuickTrick says….:
When you turn the tie rods
If you turn the right a half turn clockwise
Then the left counter clockwise, you will see the steering wheel move and be able to tell which side needs to go in and which one needs to go out
This process will also keep your alignment in check
We found a good video instruction set up from J Dawg on Youtube
Make sure to show him some love for the visuals
