Ok, so I found out that my driver side sway bar endlink was broken and the other was severely worn. got them both replaced, and the ride and handling are SO much better. Steering still acting up, but not as noticable. Tires have been re-balanced as well.

Turning to the left when driving:

-Steering feels firm and comes back to center nicely

Turning to the right when driving:

-Steering much lighter and doesn't come back to center as well

BUT, as long as the car is NOT moving, the pressure on both sides is equal! It is ONLY when the vehicle is in motion!

WHEN braking, sometimes the wheel wants to wander completly to the right as well as when driving over harsh roads.

The car HAS just had an alignment. When the wheel is straight, the car drives straight. Sometimes the issue is worse than other times. Doesn't matter if the car is hot or cold.

The Tires have also JUST been rotated.

Any Ideas?

You just had an alignment and they didn't pick up the broken suspension parts.

I would never go back there again

I would suspect worn struts and/or mounting plates. Worn struts will cause the tire to bounce down the road and drasticlly affect the handling of the vehicle. It will also cause feedback through the wheel. If they are original then you are due for them anyway.
