did ya cut the springs?? or do it properlly. If its done prop did ya do it yourself. If ya did it yaself did you do it correctly. Do all the bolts up tight etc etc etc.. If you didnt do it take it back to where it was done. The people that did the wheel alignment should have told you if an anything was wrong.

I would say that the tyres being 235 are the issue, i had a vp wagon that drive like crap with 235 on it, soon as i changed back to 215 it tracked spot on, try different tyre width if ya can.

Is it tramlining because of the wider wheels/tyres? You can find a car will follow the contours of the road much worse with wider tyres on it.

You could also be getting a bit of bump steer too on really bumpy roads. I don't really notice it on mine though.

Like a Set of 18" VY SS rims on a VL Calais. the front follows the road but the whole car still isn't badly balanced. Could he have a different issue?.
