Default Alignment w/22" wheels

Does anyone have any idea why my front passenger wheEl shifts forward when I stop in reverse and shifts backwards when I stop in drive? It acts as though there are no bushings in the control arm.

Have you checked/changed the bushings? If they're still the factory bushings its possible that they're shot and no longer functioning.

Oh yeah, I'm sure that's the problem because I just changed out the original shocks on it. I'm gonna go to the alignment shop this weekend. Thanks guys.

You should fix the bushing first or they may not do the alignment
