I would have to think an "arm,knuckle or "s" arm is bent, maybe even a tie rod. Check the front end alighnment. I really like the toe in set at "zero" on G29's.

When you say you're having trouble with steering, what exactly do you mean? Is it hard turning, does it feel "squirelly" like all over the road when you drive it, or is it just way out of alignment?

It probably "is" factory original (with lousy toe setting from the factory). Set the toe-in to between "0" and "1/8 inch" toe-in. Factory specs (if they set it right, many werent) is "between 1/8 and 3/8 inch toe in", i always aim for the lowest end of the spec. Drives are prone to changes to settings with weight, so you might want to set it with someone on the cart seat to make the suspension loaded more realistically (ever seen a cart driving with no one on it, if so, stay away from it ).
