    Just installed my H&R Anti-roll bar (ARB) and the installer had to remove the subframe to install the front bar.

    The steering wheel alignment is a little off, when the steering wheel is centered, the car is not moving straight and veering to the right. So would like to get some advice on this issue.

    Is it just a matter of doing 4-wheel alignment? Read in another forum mentioned that in addition, chassis alignment (not sure what this is) might be required????

    Thanks!

    Yep, alignment will sort it. A proper place will slacken the subframe to equal out the camber and then set the tow in/out with the wheel straight

    Thanks for clarifying! Was a little skeptical about the chassis alignment bit. So essentially sounds like it's just doing the 4-wheel alignment.
