Hi my 2000 ford escort 1.6 16v zetec 91k miles has a little problem when i drive. when i accelerate the car pulls to one side and when i release the revs it pulls back the other way. i've had this problem before, it turned out to be the lower wishbone bushes so i replaced them which resolved this problem. but recently it started again, so i replaced them again, unfortunatly the problem proceeds. do you have any idea what it could possibly be?

I've seen a lot of these with broken springs. If that helps.

Yeah thanks suffered one not long back when i lowered it, toatally hammered my motor. i ended up changing everything wishbones, struts and springs, bushes etc everything part from track rod ends.
Took it down the local ATS to get it laser tracked and alligned turned out to be the damed track rod ends. so ive changed them and it's all sweet, at last!!! " Thank's again" .
