Steering Servo Problem?

Hello. I have a question regarding my steering servo.

Whenever I turn the wheel to the right, it and let go, it centers back and the wheels are straight. Whenever I turn the wheels to the left, and let go, it also centers back-----but not the the same position as when I did this when I turned the wheels right and let go. It centers a little more to the left. The wheels are centering differently when I turn different directions. This is the case when I turn from lock to lock, and a little. It is a KO PROPO 2144 metal gear digital servo. I checked the first "plastic gear" and it does not seem stripped. Is this normal, or a servo malfunction? I know its not the car because it did the same thing in another car of mine.

Thanks in advance!

I have been racing on and off for the past 6 years and from what I can remember this is not normal. I am really perplexed since I opened up the servo and saw no damage to the gears (servo is literally brand new). Does anyone know what this can be? I use a Futaba 3PK radio, if that makes any difference.

Also, is the Airtronics servo spline the same size as a KO Propo servo spline?

Thanks in advance.
