    a lot of cheap springs do this. never had any probs with konis,eibachs etc. but did wen used gmaz and lower quality springs. but best go get ya alignment sorted,see if that sorts it

    Have you had the camber checked as well as the tracking? Worth getting both done.

    You should always get an alignment check after fitting lowering springs if only just as a precaution, it might have been out before you fitted them in which case the lowered affect will magnify it.

    I'd take it back to where you had the alignment done and explain the problem.

    Is the steering wheel straight when going in a straight line?

    low cars and wide wheels always chase the camber of the road wich is allways to the kerb. if its not pulling and only wondering gently when you let go of the steering wheel its normal. go in the middle land on the motorway and see if it does the same as the camber isnt as bad compared to small roads
