Hi folks. Had front suspension springs fitted recently, and since then when driving in a straight line my steering wheel is not straight could there be a connection? 2007 CL180 Coupe. Thank you.

If you've changed springs you will have altered the alignment, especially if you've lowered it, changed sagging springs or replaced a broken spring. You should get it re- tracked.

Smart + others :)
Definitely, if no arms have been changed, then I suspect something has moved position slightly.
