if the tyres are unevenly worn it will do that. Try swapping the front tyres from left to right and see if that fixes it. Make sure tyre pressures are even, and failing that take it back and tell them its pulling left badly, not just that u want a wheel alignment.

would help me to answer your question,take it back and let them do the work for you as in swap front tyres left to right,see if that helps,if they cant give you a reasonable answer tell them to refund your money and go elsewhere,even if it does mean spending a couple more dollars,you may even have front end issues to,if you were in adelaide i could help you,

could be flogged bushes as well in the upper control arm, when the car is on the gound or even jacked up it can be hard to pick em at time, as the movement takes a bit of load to generate. Climb under and check the condition of them, could be a failing ball joint, could be bearings, tyres could be miss matched if you have been changing them round, make sure they are same with and aspect ratio, all these can effect the geometry, and thats to start with.

is there anything on the car thats been changed recently? lowered? at home camber adjustment? what are the tyres on the front and rear are they matched?

i dont think im king s**t,but your obviously going to dodgy places that dont give a f**k , give you a toe and go get the wheels roughly straight and charge you $45, have a nice day , if at the end of the day none of these turkeys can fix your car just pump your lhf tyre to 40psi and your rhf tyre to about 20psi and go from there,that should make it drive a bit straighter and thats free advice mate,cant beat that hey, LOL dont do this though mate,im only joking
