Default steering wheel wont return to center on its own!!?

Help i need advice, my steering wheel will not return to center on its own when cornering and theres a slight squeaking over bumps, no clunking, power steering whines but still have good ps at low speeds, what could it be, bad bushings maybe? car tracks straight, just feels slightly squirrely on highway and steering wheel will not rerurn to center after cornering, any help would be appreciated, i havent gotten under the car and looked yet, what should i be looking for, just anything that looks broken and check all bushings?

Need to get it on an alignment machine. Your caster is likely off. Have you lowered the car? Might need a set of camber/caster plates.

Could be tie rods, ball joints, wheel bearings. A whole bunch of things are possible. Lift the front off the ground and grab the tire. Wiggle the wheel back and forth and up and down. If you grab the front of the wheel and the back, using the front and the back of the car for my reference. If you can wiggle the wheel a bit in this direction its most likely tie rods. If that feels fine grab the top and bottom of the wheel and give it a wiggle. If this is loose its prolly ball joints. Repeat for both sides. One side might have different issues than the other. If both are nice and tight next I'd carry it to an alignment shop
