I have the exact same issue with my KW V1! I always had some spring binding at very low speeds, but after retightening the top mounts (they were rattling) it has gotten worse. I have to do some low speed sharp left/right turns to get out of my parking structure, so the springs can 'unwind'.

However, last thursday I drove home from somewhere else, and had the car pull slightly to the right on the highway, even though I had it alligned last week. I made a quick stop and turned the wheels all the way left/right, and it was fine after that.

A Google search turned up some Mazda-guys with the same issue, mounting a so called "Thrust Bearing". I think I'll go the same way: http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=188619.0
