Alignment, bushing, or control arm??

Hey Guys-

My car pulls to left when driving and I have checked the tire pressure. The steering wheel pulls to left and feels a little bit lose when I correct it by turning the wheel right. Otherwise I hear no noise when turning, feel no shaking when braking.

Do you think I should get an alignment first??

Thanks.

Get the car on a rack and have a look at the front end components for any possible wear; usually the alignment shop will tell you before hand whether they can align or not. They won't do one before notifying you that something is wrong. if everything checks out, it should correct your problem. keep in mind a shifted belt on a tire can also cause this pulling issue. Before you go just have a buddy drive the car slowly and look for anything unusual with the tread- bulging, wear, tread uneven.
