My car pulls hard to the right. I've checked and the brakes aren't sticking, tire pressure is good, and the tie rods seem good, there is no play in the steering either..it seems like its pulling harder the more I drive it too.


i would check left caliper -

i would check left caliper - bet its not working - bleed it and see if you can get it to pressure up

Sounds good, will do... if

Sounds good, will do... if the power steering belt was put on wrong would that potentialy cause this problem? I had the belts replaced and the mechanic accidently missed a notch so the belt is too far over to the outside of the pully and now its loose and has a slight tear...

the only thing that would do

the only thing that would do is make it hard to steer if it came off - you would know if the pump wasn't working believe me

jack it up and spin the tires

jack it up and spin the tires could be a wheel bearing, I just replaced a collapsed brake line on my car that would let fluid in but would let the caliper back off real slow.

Well, I brought my car in to

Well, I brought my car in to get a suspension evaluation and they told me everything looked perfect (in good working condition anyway), but I havn't had a chance to check the brakes to see if thats whats causeing my car to pull to the right. I think that its the steering box or something to do with the power steering. The anti-lock brake light keeps coming on when I hit about 40MPH so that may be part of it...The engine light also likes to come on randomly after driving a while but I believe thats due to a faulty air filter (It has a hole in it). when I put the steering wheel strait the car is steering to the right...the steering wheel also vibrates, and bumps up and down while driving...

I would be looking for a bad wheel bearing. If bad enough, it could make your ABS light come on because of excess play in the bearing. Also could make the vibration,and pull in the wheel. Normally when I hear people describe it the way you do, something real bad is about to happen.

It sounds to me like your

It sounds to me like your left brake line is blocked. There should be a rubber brake line from your caliper to hard line on the frame. A hard right pull under braking means your left caliper is not engaging. As for the steering wheel vibration and bumps, you should have your shocks/struts checked on both sides. If one is bad, you should replace them as a pair.
