I have a '06 Charger and you cant get any better alignment then what my Charger has.Steering wheel is straight,and goes down the road straight when i let go of the wheel.Far as I know it was just the '05 with alignment problem.

Turn off the caps lock! I guess the special oil you are using isn't helping?
My 300 used to pull to the right and after a few visits to the dealer nothing changed. So after all that frustration I decided not to rotate the tires to see where the problem was. The driver side front wheel had too much toe in. I did the alignment myself and 50,000 km later with new tires there is no unusual tire wear or pulling. I didn't rotate the new tires on purpose to see if my alignment didn't simply force the car into behaving. The left front wheel was 7mm out!! Don't the dealers and Chrysler use something better than my measuring tape???

The alignment has to be performed WITH a cradle adjustment and new bolts. I found the TSB on line after an alignment, took the car back in and done the cradle adjustment and it now steers perfectly.
Originally, the dumbazz service manager tried to tell me that Chrysler built them to pull to the right " in case of a medical condition" if you lost control it wouldn't go into oncoming traffic.
I informed him that he already had a medical problem and suggested that he see a brain surgeon immediately. lol

Had same Problem at same miles, have a look at your inner tie rod. I had to wait almost 7 weeks for my tie rod from the dealer very popular item. Let me know how it works out for you.

Lift the front end off the ground. Chances are you will get wobble. The ball joint is connected to a shaft and you must buy it in one piece as it is an interdependant part. This is likely your wobble problem and most likely your pulling also. (crappy design.) If you don't have it repaired then your tie rods are soon to follow. I had to travel 2000 kilometers to get home and replace it and lord god don't hit the brakes at high speeds.

I had a similar problem with my 2007 and it ended up being the tie-rod ends, cost me about $400.00 along with another small repair. I complained at 41,000 miles should this be happening, they told me common for chrysler seen them as early as 9,000.

If you replaced the tie rods, which I did, you better have a good look at your ball joint also or you will be replacing them again shortlyl. Ball joint cannot be replaced and you will have to get the whole arm. Mine is gone again (tie rods and ball joints) for the second time and only 50,000. Hint - stay the hell away from bumps or pot holes . These cars cannot take it
