Default Differential or axle problem?

Hey it's been a while since I been on this site. My 07 STI has a problem up front, basically at low speeds it feels quite wobbley and it pulls hard to the right at full throttle. If I put my DCCD all the way to the rear it goes away. Does anyone know what this could be? A little information on the car is that I recently installed a Heavy duty clutch in the car if that helps any. The car only has 40k on it so I do not know what it could bbe


Pm me or email me at j.saa.engratgmail.com
I also wanted to add, that I took it to get it "pre-diagnosed" and my dad and another tech think from the noise that it could be a bearing that connects the drive shaft into the transmission moving around too much.

You probably already did this but check your tire psi.

Are all the tires the same size, with the same wear and good pressure?

I'm also experiencing the same problem. My is to the point to where I'm drivning in DCCD Auto I feel the same sensation but when I put it in manual and all the way back in the green the sensation goes away.

Any comments?

That is exactly what happens to my car, I took it to my buddys shop and had him a tech and my father look at it while I was inside spinning the wheels, and they think that there is something wrong with one of the center bearings. there is too much play on mine evidentally, so that is where we are going to start. Please keep me informed if you look into it any further. My email is joeysaadeh@livedotcom

I had recently changed my clutch before this started happening. Did you do the same?

Why do you think so, just because it pulls to the right when I give it the gas and DCCD is in "Auto" mode? I do not think it is an alignment issue due to the fact that it is making a clanking sound and very wobbly at low gears and when the DCCD is in "Auto" mode.

To echo what the others said.

It can be

alignment
tire issues
gearbox/diff

But the gearbox/diff is the most expensive to fix and also not a common issue.

So start with the cheaper options

1. post your alignment final figures

2. move tires from front to back. Tire wear can also cause issues

Thanks, so I should put some aftermarket camber bolts, then get an alignment and post my numbers?

Cool

For anyone who cared, or has the same problem, it was the passenger side front differential roller bearing. Some how it warped, and it looks like it is due to someone bottoming out pretty bad. Car is fixed now, and drives perfectly again. Hope this helps!
