Hi.
I have 2004 300M 3.5. The car is good but i can't set the geometry.
I mean, the geometry i propably ok (i check it on 3D system - John bean) but sometimes car pulls left, sometimes pulls right. I go to service, but the mechanic can't find any problem. Just - the steering system is very gummy is not stable.

I replaced rod ends, rubbers on rods beside steering rack, all rubbers on control arms (with rubbers on tension struts). I replaced left front strut bearing because old is broken. But the car can't drive straight. Where is problem?

How old are the tires?

Rotate the tires, or (if you can) get a different set of tires on the car and see if you still have the problem.

For the past few years I had an issue where the car always wanted to turn left if I didn't hold the wheel straight, and every alignment reading showed everything to be OK. After damaging one of my tires in Indiana last Spring, I had four brand new tires installed, and the problem was corrected. Turns out the old tires weren't wearing correctly, even though they looked OK.

Problem is not in tires. I have a summer and winter tires. Yes, the differences are visible between the tires, but change they not resolve the problem. Still it's "gummy".
