Steering not returning to the center

Hi guys, my Alfa 164 3.0v6 12v is with a strange thing. When I turn to the left the steering wheel come back to neutral. But when i turn right, the steering not come all the way to the center. Stays like 1/8 to te right. Same when the car on the elevator or on the road.. Of course on the road it drifts right after a right turn. After a left turn it does not drift.

My mechanic checked the dumpers, power steering, etc and couldn't found nothing wrong... 😞

I will apreciate a lot any hint.

Thanks.

Gian

Strut lower bearing most likely is bad. Could be upper. But my bet is lower.
