Patellar tracking difficulties are often due to weak vastus medialis muscles. It can often be hard to directly hit that muscle group depending on structural factors.

Along with the IT band stuff (which it sounds like is the problem)- you can add this little exercise:

-start from a standing position
-flex one leg at the hip (lift your knee)
-extend and externally rotate your foot at the same time (while pointing your toe)

You should look kind of like a ballarena doing this exercise.

Do a couple of sets of 10 for each leg every time you warm up.
