Default steering will not return to center

i installed megan coilovers in my car the other day. With the way this setup is, the spindle bolt area threads up on the coilover. this causes pulling on the sway bar before it is even on the ground. i have cusco 21mm front sway bar with cobb end links. do i need the white line adjustable endlink to loosen up on the sway bar in the front.
please help. thanks

I am very confused. Spindle bolt area threads up on the coilover???

And what does the sway bar have to do with the steering not centering?

the two factory camber bolts that connect from the strut to spindle. well on the megan coilovers, that bottom perch where the two camber bolts r, spin up o the coilover. so there is al ready tension on the sway bar..

most cars when u jack up the front, the wheels drop and the springs move around, there is no load on the suspension, with this setup, there is a load on the suspension in the air.

You mean they don't have enough droop travel? I doubt it's causing your problem unless you have one side severely preloaded that the other isn't. If that's the case then something is wrong with the install.

Most likely it's the top hat and a seized bearing up there. There's been a few other cases reported.
