i think i have a big problem

one of my wheels pulls harder than the other one because when i accelerate hard the car takes me to the left side and sometimes when i speed up or shift down i feel a "tick" noise from the rear.
anyone?

Yes and no....

They dont pull the same because one might loose traction, but the car will NOT pull to one side in ANY case!

Check for seized brakes on the left side...Most likely rear left...The noise you are getting could be parts of your ebrake falling appart, i had that happen to me before. You get chuncks in there that make noise AND lock up the wheel.
