Default My alignment Specs and efforts to get the steering straight

Well I think the dealership finnally did it right. I took my car to "Performance in Chapel Hill NC" for the second time since they couldn't get it right the first time around. Yeah it took them about 3 hours to do this today (Arrived at 7:15Am left at 10:20 AM ($#%# < Fill in with nasty words ) Not sure if I will let them do my oil changes maybe that will take 5 hours

Steering wheel is now straight and camber it set as below. Everything look ok? This craps hard to read and understand

Default Same issue with off center steering wheel

I have been in to Direct Tire (Watertown, MA) for an alignment and attempt at correcting an off-center steering wheel 3 times now. Spent 2 hours in this morning, I feel its just about right now.

Your alignment specs look very similar to mine, see post here ..
My 04 Sti Alignment
The steering was off to the right, meaning if you held the steering wheel straight, the car went left. The alignment was fine with no pull. However, driving straight along the highway with the steering wheel at an angle was annoying.

One peculiar thing with the Sti seems to be the off-center wheel would flip sides depending on the road camber etc.. so it would be off to the right then off to left when on straight, no camber pavement... changing the DCCD setting from auto to manual also seems to affect this, to date I haven't been able to correlate the off center wheel with a specific DCCD Setting though...

Doesn't that just mean whoever did your last alignment didn't
lock down the steering wheel before he start working on it....
