Car Pulling When Braking?!!?

So I noticed after I got an alignment, when I press the brakes, it pulls to the left....I googled it and many people say it could be tons of things, so just wondering if anyone else had this problem?

Take it back to the place you had the Alignment performed at; I'm sure they should be able to correct the issue....

Alignment issues.

According to MB, if car pulls to the left or right when breaking at low speed you have worn lower ball joint on that side. Maybe there is been some tolerance keeping the car straight, which is gone after the alignment.

On some the ball joint is part of the control arm. Newer models the ball joint can be replaced vs the entire arm. Depending on your model there may be a new arm for yours with the replacable joint, so check when buying part.s

if is the control arm ball joint you can replace only the joint, if is the torsion arm ball joint you will have to replace the arm because the ball joint is part of the cast.
