Pulling to the left at speed

My GT was in for nearside front wheel bearing a while ago and when I got it back I noticed it really pulled to the left when I was doing 70+mph. So much so, I'd have to apply pressure on the steering wheel to keep it straight. I took it back and they said it was the tracking and rectified it for me. That was last month and I've not really been anywhere to get need to gun it until yesterday. I noticed it still pulled to the left but not nearly as much. I tried it on a couple of fast roads just to rule out road surfaces etc..

Any got any ideas what this might be?

Re: Pulling to the left at speed

Tracking is hardly likely to be the cause of it pulling right or left.Road camber, tyre pressure, geometry?

Re: Pulling to the left at speed

does it pull to the left during acceleration, or braking, or constant speed, or all 3?

if its only during acceleration then the wishbone(s) on the left side have play, allowing the wheel to toe out under acceleration.
