    Sounds like you have a couple of issues

    Blue Bold sounds like Engine/Gearbox Mounts.
    Green Bold sounds like Drop links

    Black Bold i don't understand How can you drive the car with the Steering wheel Locked, You need to have the Ignition Key removed for that to happen !!!!

    i'm thinking track rod end or lower arm bush split... that would explain the pulling to one side when braking too. i assume you meant braking in a straight line.
