    How about torque steer from the part-time 4wd?

    Does the vehicle veer left or right during acceleration, deceleration, coasting, etc.?

    Just putting this up there.

    Stabilizer clamp bushing is not the same as rack and pinion bushing.

    perhaps it is your tires, sir. out of round na or "oblong". replacement is the only option.
    I second this motion, hehehe... with stock engine's as well.

    Do the simple and inexpensive checks 1st, tire pressure and inspection of the tire vs being oblong is free.

    Then move on to the other suggestions like the CV joint and rack n pinion checks.

    All 4 tires are new. My guess? Baka loose yung mga bolts used to align the wheels? Possible ba yun? Na as short as 3 months nagiging out of alignment siya dahil hindi mahigpit

    Clunking sound on full turn or reverse might come from the cv joints. Check the boots it still ok. Try cleaning the joint and replace the cv grease
    Yup its just off, not veering. Car goes straight at 11 position.

    New tie rod ends
    New lower suspension arms
    New upper suspension arms

    Still, alignment is off

    Steering wheel returns to 11 oclock position after turning which is when the car drives straight. If steering wheel is center, the car moves to the right.

    3 things needs to be aligned in this order:

    1. Steering rack
    2. Steering wheel
    3. Wheels

    Everything needs to be centered around the steering rack. Before doing anything else, this has to be set at dead center. The steering rack has a 'natural' center where steering assist is neutral.

    Next, with the rack centered, the steering wheel should naturally be at 12 o'clock (if it is still unmodified from the factory). If not, the steering wheel needs to come off the column and lined up to 12 o'clock. Once lined up, a holder is typically used to make sure it doesn't move while the rest of the steering components are aligned.



    Finally, the tie-rods are adjusted so the individual front wheels are aligned to the proper toe-in and other parameters designed for that car.

    Steering wheel not-centered problems may arise when lazy technicians just remove the steering wheel from the steering column and reattach it so it lines up at 12 o'clock, without taking into consideration that the steering rack also needs to be at dead center.

    99% that your rack and pinion assembly shifts from either side. Try to move the steering wheel to the left or right with engine off (no power assist) to confirm its shift.
