May be sticking, or stabilizer bar is loose, Bad bearings etc. One other thing is the motor mounts, that could cause lean through torque and pulling, also thunking noises, vibration and so forth.

No the rear has not been checked. I do not have a difference in ride height and I do not use the parking brake, nor do I have any thunking/clunking or vibration.

As a side note, I had my rear swaybar replaced with the Steeda bar, and I have had the rear motor mount replaced with the MS3 RMM.

This pull is definitely not normal. I have never driven a car that does this. Yes I know sometimes they tend to pull but definitely not as much and as often as this.
Mods: Drop in K&N filter, Steeda RSB, MS3 RMM, Remote start, Llumar tint, Ti engine cover, Husky floor mats, OEM splash guards
