Default Car pulls hard to the right under hard power

Yeah, it's me again. On the road at a cruise, I noticed the car pulls a bit to the right, so thought I would just take it in for alignment. But notice when I give it a lot of power, it pulls HARD, Very HARD to the right. Recently the car had the front end gone though because it was knocking, then the shafts/CV joints. Any idea what could be happening?

Are you hearing any noises, or is it simply just pulling. The easiest solution would be to get the alignment done, and see if the problem persists. Or just take it in for a diagnostic.

no noises, went through that when I first got the car, they replaced all the bushings and rubber spacers by the struts.

I'm really at a loss then! I have no idea what the problem could be. I'm sorry man, but I would take it in to the shop and let them tell you what's wrong, for $50.

If it is AWD, then this wouldn't be it---if your car is FWD, i would guess either wheel balance, or just common torque steer. I have an S80 and it runs just fine. If I really punch it doin about 10 mph out of a turn, it pulls to the right. You just gotta get used to the control. The car has one drive wheel until the STC kicks in (the right wheel, I believe) so you will have drift when youre at lower speeds and high RPM's.
