All good. Wheel alignment place said I needed to replace tie rod but took it to mechanic and its fine. Just got a brand new set of kumho ku31s and wheel alignment and its drives great. I'm running -1 camber as my car is lowered on coils. That's okay isn't it? Please excuse my noobness.
Also steering creak is not there now. I think I was just the loose coilover lock perch, but I've loctited them and all good.
