Default Any dealer techs on here?

Well, I got my car back from the shop after the accident and now i'm having some drive line issues (more here: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1339122 ) along with the issue posted in that thread my car keeps pulling to the right when I accelerate but goes perfectly straight when I let off the gas.

Just want to have a dealership look at the drive line/ under the car to see if they can see anything.

TIA!

Not "shooting" to the right, it will pull very slightly to the right. I only had the car for like a week before the accident and dont remember it doing it, but I could be wrong.

I just want to have the car checked out to make sure the body shop/tow truck didnt **** anything up.

I just had my car aligned by my friend and he said you want a little bit of a toe out on the left wheel compared to the right to compensate for the inside crest on the road. Maybe they didn't add more tow out on your left front when they re-aligned it?

I had a car pull to one side after an acident, turns out the sub-frame was slightly bent.

yeah, sometimes after accidents not much can be done. The frame could be tweaked enough to make any alignment useless. I work for power subaru and i see it all the time. Some cars that hit curbs or get good front end damage can't be fixed. No matter what we do the car will most likely never be the same

The car was not hit that bad, it was just a fender bender, and a new tie rod. I know for a fact that there is no frame damage or tweeking going on here. If anything i think it could be what clayton said, although it drivers perfectly straight when i'm not on the gas and starts pulling right when i give it gas, which is why i'm thinking its not the alignment.

Exactly my point. I dont think anything is still bent or it would be pulling all the time, So i have no idea what it is. Maybe it has to do with the clunking...

hrmm I wish I could help with this! Is it possible that it pulls just a little when your not on the throttle and it's simply more noticeable when you give it throttle?

OK, this might sound stupid but have you checked you tire pressure on the pass front/rear?

LOL, well none of the tires looked low at all, but I checked them anyways. Turns out the front passenger side had 29 but the driver side had only 31, so i filled both back up to 35 and now it doesnt pull! Never would of thought 3 psi would make that big of a difference...

I'm still having the drive train clunking issue, so i'm going to take it in and hopefully get that issue resolved.
