Default weird vibration

Hey guys i am wondering if any of you know what this is. When i am driving at low speeds like 15 mph or below my car feels like it is tugging right, pretty hard. when i hit my brake it also goes that direction. It started to get worse and sometimes at high speed it will all the sudden tug to the right.. I just did my shocks and had aligned about 3 weeks ago.. any ideas?? thanks

Sounds like it could be a ball joint that gave way. If you just had it aligned they should have noticed it, though.

as soon as i start slowing down it starts jerking like someone is pulling my wheel. But it happens even if i do not touch the brake. Yesterday it started doing it at like 50 mph so i turned around. I wasnt sure what it was i did not want it to be a tie rod or somthing. Ball joint you say? Would it pull to the side thats bad??

check power steering fluid if it is low it can make the car pull to the right.

Hey all...new to trhe forum...but this is kinda like what my problem was....it was the sway bar link on the one side....it caused the steeringwheel to jerk to one side...the side with the broken piece.....the piece is like 7-14 $$ at any auto store.....It'* possible to do it yourself...not quite sure how good you are with cars....but a shop could do it in an hour....maybe even less.......but this also cause the front axel on my car to snap when i took a turn, so oyu should get it fixed asap......But i dont know if this is for sure what it is without seing pic'*...so just take it to your shop....and just have them look at it, and do a check on it.....
