Default Vibration and pull

Ok I just took a trip for the holidays and I just noticed a pull hitting every other second twards the passanger side but just while giving it gas once I let off it stops or if I open it up it stops and for about 50 or so miles the same thing and then got faster and faster untill a full vibration took over and pued really hard to right and again as soon as I let off the gas it stops, so then I let it vibrate 2-3 minutes without letting off and then it stops on its own so I though something just got in a binde and 40 or so miles later it repeats slow at first and tbe full out vibration, also it not a balance thing because it does this throughout the speed range. Any one had this problem before if so please help

Have a tire shop take a look at you tires or do it yourself if you can. A few years ago I had one of my front tires start separating which caused vibration and pull. Replaced the tires and it was fine.

^^ that'd be good first step. You never said what end of the car? We have the when, what about the "Where?"

I would also be suspicious of a stuck caliper i.e. brake is dragging. Note a rear brake CAN make a car pull. Don't think its isolated to the front. The rotor color may be tell tale sign. Darker in color and headed towards blue says its getting hot.

Jack up the car and check for wheel play.

What, when, where, - " WHO?? "
Ha - how many miles on it?

Any previous work done like brakes? Has it ever been wrecked or curbed hard enough to change the steering wheel position when driving straight?

Check your struts/shocks next. If they look good, move on the the shock tower mounts.
