After having a slight accident were the left hand front wheel was ripped off, the left hand lower control arm, ball joints and sway bar link were replaced, but ever since then I've noticed when driving (mainly higher speeds) that the car suddenly pulls to the left, its a very jerky motion and is easily corrected by steering in the opposite direction, this is obviously a problem tho and not quite sure what could be causing it, any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'd be checking the ball joints again, all control arms, Pitman arm and wheel bearings.

Honestly. Take it to pedders for a $20 suspension check, they'll itemize everything and possibly repair any easy to fix problems.

Got the ute checked out at dapco, they said theres a few nuts and bolts that were loose and a few bushes are worn, plus it needs a new idler arm, and the left hand front brake line is about to burst? got quoted $760.50 for the whole job which is too much :/ is it possible a faulty idler arm could cause the thing to "dart" around on the road?
