Steering wheel position after wheel alignment

Hi
today I had my car done for wheel alignment because excessive wear on inner tyre. When I drove on motorway the steering position is not level as I go straight, the fast that I go it makes a worst and when I drive slow, the steering wheel is on perfect position. Is this normal or I need to take back to the garage?

If the steering is off the same amount all the time I would say the alignment was done the lazy way by opening one side only and you should bring it back.
However if the steering wheel misalignment is changing with speed it could be that you have worn bushes in the lower arms or some other related area. I would get the bushes and control arms checked out for wear.

which means the alignment wasn't done correctly - because playful bushs = steering alignments always out

Take it back!

True that. Any aligner worth his salt will swing out of the bushes first to make sure he isn't wasting everyones time.
