my stang pulls left when I hit the pedal even on small accelerations still do that
could it be possible that the differential misaligned?
Excessive torque is a sign of a broken motor mount, especially in front-wheel drive vehicles. When the mounts snap, the engine may move in such a way that it interferes with the throttle or gear shift. This can lead to leaks in the exhaust. This usually happens in the area where the manifold joins the main exhaust pipe, or the pipe may collapse. If the broken mount happens to be an end-mount (at the end of the chassis, transmission or engine), this can also lead to torque steer as the engine's power pulls the steering wheel in one direction or the other. Please post back your findings. HTH
A good 4 wheel alignment will show your thrust angle, which will indicate the alignment of your rear end. It isn't adjustable, as 22GT infers. About the only thing that should make it be wrong, if those items are correctly placed and centered, would be a prior accident having moved the rear and its mounting points.
I felt that if you read the explanation carefully, it would become clear, however, it's not nessassary to understand. Have someone put the car in drive and then reverse, rev the engine while you watch outside. Be careful!! If the brake doesn't hold, you could be injured or killed. The mount is supposed to move but if the engine jumps up everytime you put it in gear more it's more than likely that you have a broken mount. If you have any doubt, watch another similar car if possible, but they all move.
