It was very smooth after I got it back. That was three years ago. This just started happening four months ago. I will bring it back to the alignment shop. I would suppose they know how to reset the cradles, front and back into alignment.

A lot of alignment shops won’t do it, dealer won’t even do it. good year usually does. It involves putting it on an actual lift, not an alignment rack and laying string/measuring. Google it, guy I on the other forum had that issue, lots have

Also, there’s very specific alignment specs - don’t settle for an “in the green” alignment. A little bit makes a big difference. Those specs are in that same thread I believe

One of the Dodge dealers here does the full cradle alignments. You can check with a dealer who has a solid repair shop.

Mechanic who did alignment before is telling me since it aligned in the green a few months ago I need to look elsewhere for the problem. He is going to test drive her within a week to hopefully find the cause.
