My grand prix has developed this hard left pull. I've dealt with this issue before on this car, but this time it'* different.

If I make a left or right turn it constantly pulls to the left. Before I had a memory steer issue. I turn to the right it would go straight. Turn to the left it would pull left hard.

I got that fixed. Over the past couple of days this new pulling issue has gotten pretty bad. It takes quite a bit of strength to keep the car going straight.

This is the position my wheel needs to be in to keep the car going straight.

I've recently replaced tie rods, ball joints, spring plates, front struts, and calipers. I also replaced my front sway bar bushings, and control arm bushings. I had the car aligned after that and it was driving fine.

Now it'* pulling again and I'm not sure what it is. Might be a bad belt in my left tire?

Wow, that'* bad. My ranger used to pull, but nowhere near that bad. Try swapping the tire to the rf or rr to see if it changes.

did you do the upper strut mounts too? i would say since it wa sfine and replaced most everything i would guess a bolt or mount is loosening back up.

my mounts are SHOT I have to hold my wheel left to go stright or it shoots off to the right violently, your bearings in the mounts may be bad or u replaced the old mounts with bad ones, the guy who put my shocks and struts on a couple years ago either didn't replace my mounts or put bad ones on because I can't believe how bad its gotten

yours is wearing out, probably control arm bushings, tie rods, or ball joints etc. his was fine after they alighned and now its not which seems like one of the adjustments loosened up
