Default 06 Precedent Steering Pulls left

Hi! Just got a new to me 06 electric club car precedent. Stock suspension as far as I can tell. The cart pulls badly to the left if you let go of the steering wheel. I've read quite a few threads prior to posting that point to alignment or a bent spindle but I've also seen that if it's the spindle I should not align it first. Can someone take a look at the pics and help get me in the right direction. I'm a mostly computer nerd so this is a little out of my area of expertise ha. Thanks for any help. ALSO I can also tell a slight wobble at higher speeds.

First thing I would do is measure to see if your out of alignment...draw a vertical line on the tire tread with a yellow lumber crayon or something you can see...it only needs to be 2" long in the center of the tread. Then measure the lines between the tires with the tires pointed straight and the line towards the front of the cart...then roll the cart forward so the line is in the back if the tire(towards the rear of the cart) and then measure again...there should be a 1/4" difference between measurements with the closer measurement in the front....once this is done then advise..

From your first picture, it looks like your wheels are towed out. They should be towed in slightly. Measure the tow alignment and adjust if necessary. Check it with somebody sitting in the driver's seat.

I would check the camber adjustment. And have you ever had the grease fittings lubed?

It was the camber. Rides much better now. Still a little off but close enough for jazz. Thanks everyone

Did you check front bushings? Common for those to wear and fall out and cause a camber issue.
