** Moved to the General Tech Chat Area **

Sounds like your car may have an alignment issue.

When was the last time you aligned your car?

If recent, check your tie-rods and CV Joints and make sure you don't have any major wobble on your front wheels with the car up in the air. Also look at the top hat of your front suspension and make sure that doesn't move when you have in the air also.

Was the wheel locked? Was there any play in the joints themselves? When inner tie rods go you'll get a similar pull on accel and decel. Get an alignment and they'll tell you if they can't due to worn parts.
