Its uncommon, but problems with the bake components on other side, blockage in pipes (or leak) calipier issues, can to do a quick test with pumping with the wheel off use a lever to try and turn the wheel n application, if there is a blockage in the pipe you should have increased braking pressure on the rear opposite, (if i remember rightly)

Pads can be a commom weakness, another quick check.

Actually when does it pull to the right, acceleration, braking on constant drive. also are ensuring that you are on 100% flat ground when checking, most roads will are not flat due to traffic wear. motorways or main A roads being the best place to check.

If it's pulling to the right then something is not straight. It could be the tracking, or you may have uneven camber. I'd get a 4 wheel alignment test done, to see that the tracking is correct and also that no one wheel has uneven camber (trailing arm or wishbone bushes worn?). A tyre place with the correct equipment can do it.

Has the car ever been in a shunt? It could be just "not straight" (i.e back wheels not aligned with the front wheels). Only a bodyshop with a jig can measure that... but this is relatively unlikely compared to an alignment or camber problem...

hi ralf,
had laser align done and camber on drivers is positive. i had welding done to strut tower and i think it may have moved strut as strut mounts seem okay...just sheared bolt off strut mount trying to adjust strut so itll be going back to welder now anyways so ill see if he can make camber negative this time..
