Default front end Tech ?

I have an 06, and the car pulls hard to the right with steering wheel shimmy. I haven't hit any pot holes, is it a front end alignment?

Does the steering wheel shake at low speed like 10 or 15 mph? If so DO NOT DRIVE the vehicle any more than ABSOLUTELY nec! Sounds like you have a broken cord in one of the front tires. It will also cause a pull due to the tires being different sizes side to side. If the cords break in a tire it can allow the tire to grow. Typically uneven causing the shimmy.

Thanks very much for the info......yes it does shimmy at low mph. Looks like new tires are on the menu.
