I know that I need an alignment done because my steering wheel always veres me to the left. I noticed this about a week or so ago. My car was fine and all of a sudden my steering wheel now always faces the left when I am driving. I have not hit anything in my car (besides potholes from this winter) and my car has been fine up until the last week now. I have noticed that if I get up to 40mph it feels like my driver side tire is wobbling. When I got home I checked it and doesn't look off or look like anything is loose and the tire pressure is fine. Is this something that could be an issue because I need an alignment or is there something else going on too?

The reason all cars need an occasional alignment is because the many parts that make up your suspension eventually wear out.

In your case, it's most likely a bad tie rod. You'll have to take it in.

Also, this can become dangerous. So you really shouldn't drive at high speeds until you get it fixed.
