Exclamation off center problem

[FONT=Garamond][SIZE=5][COLOR=Teal]
Hey Guys!
I need some help!
My 2004 WRX has this wierd off center problem. When i turn to the right then return the steering to center, its okay. Meaning the car goes straight. But when i turn to the left then return it back, it's has to be in the 11 o'clock position to go straight. I can make the steering wheel center again just by turning right.
FYI, the car is aligned properly and the dealer seems be as well.

Help!!!!!!!!!

What condition are your tires in? Any flat spots or excessive wear? It might even be something as simple as tire pressure. Are they balanced?

Yup! All the tires are balanced.....
Tires are brand new...
The car is actually just 3 months old and it hasn't even reach 1000 miles...
I don't know if my dealer is shooting for the stars but the service advisor said
it could be the steering preload....
Could he be right???
