Default Pulls to the Right under acceleration

I have a '82 Camry with 206K miles on it. Been a good car except that
a couple of months ago it started pulling to the right a lot. I have
new tires, balanced and had the front end aligned and it still pulls to
the right. I normally do all my own mechanic work, but haven't done
any on this car, yet. A friend of mine said my problem might be a bent
tie rod. Does this sound plausable? Any ideas/help would be
appreciated.

Default Re: Pulls to the Right under acceleration

It seems like the mechanic would have noticed a bent tie rod while
doing the alignment work. A problem caused by a bent tie rod would
probably not be intermittent. If the tie rod end is just worn out and
working itself loose then maybe the problem would come and go. Inspect
the tie rods yourself and see if they seem loose or damaged. You might
also check that the right front brake caliper is releasing completely.
