focus leans while driving

i've already read thru the many suspension/steering threads haven't seen anything similar. I have an SE sedan(03/2011 build) with 8,000 miles has a few suspension steering issues while driving car will occasionally shift/lean(not related to road conditions) towards passenger side front (car physically lowers on passenger side an inch or more) it will stay that way awhile then levels out; steering also pulls to right while its happening then car gradually returns to normal .also have a vibration/pull in steering wheel/wheels when starting from stop/or applying brakes quickly,clunk in suspension that many people have,almost impossible to drive when windy car all over the road(had steering rack replaced at 4400 miles when it finally came in).took it to one dealer said it was normal.Took it in to dealer i bought car from,went for test drive with mechanic car started leaning/pulling right when we pulled out of lot,3 hours later 3 times in shop(rotated tires all they did just had them balanced and rotated) 3 more road tests later (also trying its normal routine by going on a road test in a new focus) they tell me somethings wrong but they have no clue because it only leaned the one time.anybody have similar problems/fixes or ideas? thanks
