This answer was rated:

After making a right hand turn and going straight the car pulls right. I correct the pull and then it rolls ok until I make another right turn. Sometimes it will do it on the left.

Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

I would look for a suspension joint seized or tight not allowing steering to centre.

Jack the vehicle up and remove track rod ends.

Turn each hub lock to lock feeling for abnormal stiffness.

Turn steering wheel lock to lock checking any u/j tightness.

Also check track rod end joints for the same.

Please keep me informed.
