There are several ways to tell if your Volvo front-end is out of alignment. One way is that the steering wheel may appear to be off center (an indication of something bent or tie rod ends off center). Second, your car may pull to the left or right when on flat ground (an indication that the alignment is off). Third, Front tire wear is an indication that problems exist in the front-End. This could mean that the caster or camber is off and in need of adjustment.
