Scotty I need your help! 2000 Honda Accord LX with over 200K miles. Needed Struts badly so I replaced them with parts that had strut and spring together. Car's alignment was perfect prior to the struts replacement. Put struts on and test drove the car and a sound like stealing brakes started at 10 mph and got louder as we sped up. Car goes to the left when take hands off wheel. Any idea what I might have screwed up? thank you Sir

alignment is definitely off, have a front end shop check it and pray it just needs alignment and that parts you got weren't poorly made and not a perfect size

Thanks Scotty, Yesterday I loosed all the bolts, compressed the spring to simulate weight of the car on strut/spring, tightened the bolts and torqued them down to spec. No more noise and no more alignment issue.
