    is it possible to be the cv joints? maybe their isnt much grease? after about a week or so after getting the alignment done the steering starts to go to the right again and start pulling, this happens everytime.
    just getting ennoyed with it now tbh.

    Have you jacked the car up and checked for rim rock? put your hand at top and bottom of wheel and shake and then on either side and shake and see if there is any play.

    Is there any noise either under acceleration or during slow manouveres, like a clunking or cracking?

    I used to get this on my Celica periodically and all it was, was my hub nut slightly loose, so check that first mate, could be a simple fix.
