Hello all.
If anyone can offer an accurate solution, I will be very grateful.
Ok, Ford Escort 1.4, N reg. On braking at 40 or above, the car pulls noticeably to the right; ease off the brake and it corrects itself. Was told it would be the brakes, which i have replaced without improvement. Had car down to locale garage to check the brakes on his brake machine and they are ok. Was told by him that the rack was stiff on one lock which we have replaced and still the same fault. We have had the rear bushes on the back axle replaced not so long ago. Then the problems with the front started we noticed that it had ware down the inside part of the tyres to the steel which we replaced and got the tracking done at the same time Tyre pressures are correct, Suspension Arms have been replaced last year for its test . Can anyone advise, please?
Thank you.

I would say lower arms.

Did you replace them with genuine Ford arms?
Has it been lowered?
Has it got aftermarket wheels fitted?
Are tyre sizes the same?

Did you have the tracking redone after the steering rack was replaced?
