pulls under braking

4 posts in this topic

hello people i have a ford escort ghia (95) mk6 and it has a problem. When driving along the car seems to want to pull to the right a little when accelrating but when i apply the brakes it has a sudden pull to the left. Over the last 2 days i have replaced (both) lower arms along with new bolts, front discs and pads (completly freed up both calipers with WD-40) also bled each brake, both trake rod ends and the tracking done today. i have now come to the end of my mechanical knowlage so hope some one knows on here. THANKYOU FOR ANY REPLYS. :rolleyes:

First thing to check is the tyres, they could be tracked if they have been run for a while with excess play in the old parts you have replaced, try swapping the fronts with the backs.

do you think it could be the top mounts. even when driving it feels like it wonders a bit and i have to correct it but mostly pulls hard to the left under breaking.
