Re: Car Pulling To The Left . .
Here's a wild though: Measure your car's wheelbase (distance between front and back wheel centres) from both sides. Take the car to a level surface, put it in neutral, straighten the steering wheel (would help if you let it lock at the straight position) and push the car slightly forward and backward for a couple of times so that the bushes settle. Then measure the distance between front and back wheel centres with a tape measure or a plain rope. If you find a noticeable difference then one or more of the suspension arms should be bent.
I've heard of a story similar to yours, from a guy who couldn't get his car not to pull despite good tracking and having all suspension bushes checked. He finally measured the wheelbases the way i described above and found a significant difference between them. Then by measuring each wheel's arms separately he discovered that one of the lower arms of the front wheels was slightly bent backwards. He changed the arm and the pulling was gone.
