Pulls to the right, alignment didn't help - what now?

Hey all,

My beloved 2004 convertible keeps wanting to pull to the right, it did it ever since I bought it used a year ago. I've paid Ford to realign in, but it didn't help. They switched the front wheels, same thing.

Whether I brake hard or just drive doesn't matter. I seem to believe that it doesn't pull so bad when I'm driving at freeway speeds.

Brakes don't hang. I cannot feel anything wrong with the suspension. The car has 25k miles on it.

I want to get it fixed, preferably under warranty, of course. Can anyone give me some suggestions as to what might be the culprit?

(And yes, I have tested it on flat, level roads ;-).

Thanks.

take the wheel off and look at ur springs.... one might be broken- mine was and it didnt make that much of a difference in the way the car drove until it was replaced... then i found out how it really was supposed to drive.:walksmile also.... just a suggestion- check your calipers and your roters - who knows

try switching your tire from left to right you might have a radial pull happening with your tires and you would not be able to see that .
good luck and when ya get it figured out let us know
