The issue with turning is a result of the substandard materials they use for construction. The springs are binding when turning causing a memory steer effect. If the coilovers used bearings with a higher axial load rating or a roller bearing in upper perch the memory steer would not be present.

Final thoughts, get used to it or sell them and buy something worth while.
thanks !! Does that mean it have nothing to do with my toe in?
Since the shop retune by toe in two times without the alignment computer.
