That car is not sold here so we have no specifics on it but the symptoms are usually an indication of a binding upper strut plate.

To test this you would have to set the front wheels on turn plates and disconnect the outer tie rods so the wheels can be turned independently by hand to determine which one may or may not be binding. You need to have the weight of the car on them for the problem to show up.

We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

HT, check out what this thing looks like here > https://www.bing.com/...4959e64770e5536e7333 <
It sure looks heavy duty enough it probably isn't a "strut" suspension and IDK if a rack+pinion or gearbox (for steering OP) is super heavy duty as well?
OP, it matters which type if you know. There are also alignment adjustments to help steering return back to straight ahead may be so far off it could be damaged to get that way??
Terms may screw us up that alignment angle is "Caster" truck like vehicles have less most of the time but some.


Do check front end parts I suggest both on ground and hoisted if you can find anything showing wear?


If not it would have to go for an alignment IMO places that do that would have to know all parts are up to spec first to do it and if not tell you what it would need.


It's not normal any way you look at it if you can't find something yourself you need a shop that can do front end alignment that also replaces or adjusts the parts as needed for EU use this is really heavy duty IMO,
