1997 Ford Mustang Coupe V6 My car pulls to the left when I apply the brakes. While driving, the steering seems to wonder from side to side. I feel like I am not in control of the car. Also when I turn a corner the steering wheel does not come back buy itself like it used to. I have had a new rack & pinion installed, alignment, new tires, new brakes. Your help would greatly be appreciated.

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA K. Wiley, Thank You for writing in to Ask Patty, I would return to the installer that performed these services. Sounds like your alignment may not have been performed to specifications. If your vehicle pulls to one side predominantly when you apply the brakes they may need to be re-adjusted, your brake shoes may be set too close to one drum more than the other. I would contact the point of service and request someone ride with you for proper diagnosis. AJ Pierce
