Car Pulls to the left, well and right

So i completely forgot this forum existed, and by forgot i mean that i trolled ot the entire time. Anyways, after hours of searching and replacing the front calipers to ensure they were not seized, i cant figure out why my car pulls to the right super hard. For example, its noticeble after 25mph, driving in second it starts pulling to the left under acceleration but once you put the clutch in or stop giving it gas, she pulls ridiculously hard to the right and wants to change lanes or crash into cars. Currently ive left the car in the driveway (to dangerous to drive) and the motorcycle still has a blown motor, so all i am driving is my bike or my moped lol. Please if someone could give some insight that would be great!

Sounds like something either got bent or a bushing rotted out or maybe needs an alignment. Take the tires off and check everything. Check lower and upper ball joints too. Did this happen slowly over time or did it all of a sudden happen?

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

Sounds like something broke. That's way too much play. You were right to park it. Could be an inner or outer tie rod end. Whatever it is, it should be pretty easy to spot if it's moving that much.

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

When this happened to me, I changed the inner and outer tie rods then got an alignment and everything was fine. I also changed upper and lower control arms at one time so I wasn't sure exactly what the problem was but the problem is somewhere along those lines

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

deff. The tie rod, lol my right front had a little play from left to right and I went to get a inspection and he still passed me. I drove the car for a year and finally got the tie rod fixed, all is well now.

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

Things to Check:
1: Inner Tie Rod
2: Outer Tie Rod
3: CV Axles Both Passenger and Driver.
4: if all fails look at the Calipers hose, piston, make sure the hardware is all their.

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

i had a firebird that did something similar to this before, it turned out one of my power steering lines had a leak, that might be something to check.

Re: Car Pulls to the left, well and right

Definitely sounds like a badly worn suspension part. Jack the front of the car up (wheels off the ground) and shake them left to right and up and down. Left and right play is generally tie rods and up and down is usually ball joints.
