Raise tire by jacking under lower a frame and grab tire and try to move around. Any loose/worn parts will show as wobble in tire. If wobble is detected, look at ball joint/tie rod end/other for teltale sloppiness/play.

When is the vehicle pulling left. During acceleration only or when going down the road at a steady speed?
